Once again I am rallying my family and friends across the globe in my team, Maria’s Clan Spread Smiles, for AuroraWALKS. Our first in person walk, THIS Saturday June 11th, benefitting Aurora Day Camp.
Aurora is Georgia’s only full summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, ages 3 1⁄2 – 16. I have been the Development Director for Aurora for three years and I am very blessed to work with this great team and powerful mission. Providing a magical camp and year-round and in-hospital programs, ALL COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE!
I am VERY LATE TO START - life has been eventful, we were the TOP TEAM in last two virtual walks, raising $20,000 plus each year! As some of you know, the Aurora team has also supported me through two years of surgeries, cancer treatments and grueling side effects.
My personal goal is $7,000 and my team goal is $10,000 will you help us reach our goals? You can either donate to my page or join our team as a walker on the buttons on this page.
Our 5th summer camp opened this last Monday with a record number of campers and 180 registered. Aurora is not about cancer – it’s about fun. Children fighting cancer and siblings laughing every day, a priceless gift to any family, is what we do at Aurora. Approximately 60% of our campers are under age 10, and 30% are younger than 8. There are no other programs like these in Atlanta. Help me give these little fighters a precious opportunity to be normal kids and have fun.
Every dollar counts and every walker who raises $100 earns the official AuroraWALKS 2022 t-shirt. Your support and friendship will help us reach our $200,000 Walk goal to support these life-changing programs for children who need us!
$6,000 is the cost to send one child to camp and just take two minutes to watch our powerful video below on our impact.
