Dear Friends & Family,

I am looking to change the world for a child with cancer by sponsoring a camper for an entire summer with the gift of a $6,000 scholarship. The SunriseWALKs is an opportunity for you to show your support for the Sunrise Day Camp. Sunrise Day Camp is the only full summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings.

Sunrise Day Camps gives summer back to children with cancer, their siblings and family. In 2018, it is estimated that over 12,000 children will be diagnosed with cancer, in the US alone. These families are met with financial demands when a chronic illness impacts their child. Sunrise gives families dealing with cancer the opportunity to have a summer that allows them to just be a kid again. Sunrise offers hope, not for a medical cure, but that each child might experience the true meaning of childhood.

In 2017, 1,500 children were enrolled in Sunrise’s 7 camps. Sunrise operates 3 camps in the NY tri-state area and 4 in Israel. For 2018, the 8th location is opening in Georgia.

Sunrise Pearl River, which is the facility I am raising money for, has been operating since 2012 and enrolls 275 campers. The funds do go to good use. In 2018, Pearl River received a new amphitheater, climbing wall, playground and gazebo.

In addition to summer day camps, Sunrise On-Wheels is a year round program that brings camps to Pediatric Oncology Clinics around the world. This gives children undergoing treatments at oncology clinics a camp like day. This program serves over 3,000 children a year.

I invite all my family, friends and community to join me in this rewarding day so together we can make a difference and give summer back to children battling cancer. My family and I participated in SunriseWalks 2017 Pearl River event and it warmed our hearts. To continue supporting this great cause, I will be walking June 10th in SunriseWalks Long Island event. Sunrise Day Camp Pearl River hosts their walk on Sunday, October 14th.

Thank you for your support.

Love,

Abby
