Why do we support Special Days Camp!
I would like to share with you what the Wheelin for a Cure Annual Event is all about. It is our chance to support “normal children” dealing with extraordinary circumstances. It is a chance to send kids with cancer and leukemia to camp so they can just be “kids for a change” and it is a chance to send their siblings to camp to help deal with their emotions and a chance for them to be “first for a change”.
Camp provides a safe place to enjoy normal childhood camp activities in a healthy outdoor setting. Skilled nursing personnel are on hand 24/7 and all their medical needs can be taken care of on site, even chemotherapy. Campers gain Hope, life-long friendships and skills to deal with school, work, and everyday challenges. Many kids come back year after year and when it is time, they come back as volunteers.
Special Days Camp is for kids 6 thru 17. One week for the siblings and one week for the child living with cancer. There are over 100 kids at each camp, last year there were 125 at the sibling’s week when we visited. There is also a Winter camp where both groups get together for a Fun Filled weekend. These experiences are life changing and so worth our time. It costs about $1000.00 a child to go to camp. Each family is asked to pay $75.00 for their child. 90% of these families are unable to pay, usually because of medical expenses one prescription for their child could cost $75.00. No child is ever turned away because they can’t pay. This is where we come in. With your support we would like to send at least 10 kids to camp in 2016. Because of your generosity, the 2nd Annual Wheelin for a Cure Event is helping to send 6 kids to camp this August.
Thank You Everyone for coming to The 2014 Wheelin’ For A Cure Event!
The Two Trackers appreciate your support for the Special Days Camps. There were 78 rigs present and over 172 people.
You raised $6,000.00 after expenses. We are very happy with the results of this great event.
