WHO WE ARE


The mission of Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings through our Day Camp, Year-Round, and In-Hospital Programs, all offered free of charge

 More than just a walk,
 SunriseWALKS is an event filled with music, face painting, games, prizes, and more! Through your generosity, you have the power to give children with cancer a gift that will change their lives forever: the magic of summer.


A WALK TO GIVE SUMMER BACK TO CHILDREN WITH CANCER
 

By joining us, you will be playing a key role in sending children affected by cancer to Sunrise Day Camp, where they can forget about hospital beds and needles, and enjoy a summer camp filled with excitement, friendship and fun.

One exciting new tool is the Social Media Punch Card!

Sure, it looks pretty, but how does it work?

2. Upload the Punch Card to your Instagram or Facebook story (add your Venmo name so people know where to send the money).

3. Share a short explanation so people know what you're asking for and why.


4. As people Venmo you a donation, tag their social media handle on the Punch Card and "cross off" the amount they donated.



5. Every time a donation is received, re-post the updated Punch Card. People appreciate being recognized for their good work!
