My brilliant and brave daughter Maya fought childhood cancer and I am starting my team for AuroraWALKS to raise funds for Aurora Day Camp. As the board chair and a passionate supporter, this mission is very important to our family and we need your help!
My daughter Maya was diagnosed with leukemia at only 3 years old and was in treatment for 3 years. She bravely endured toxic medications, lost all of her hair and smiled through endless doctor’s appointments which Rachel and I never missed attending. Maya and Crosby have attended all 3 summers since Aurora Day Camp opened. It is hard to describe what Aurora has done for my children and our family.
They can’t wait for summer to start and dread the last day of Aurora Day Camp, they sing every camp song, love all the counselors and activities and for the first time since Maya’s diagnosis, they do all of this together. Aurora has been life changing for Maya and Crosby and we all enjoyed this summer’s virtual camp immensely.
While we cannot host the Walk in person due to Covid, my Walk Team and Rachel and I, are committed to this magical mission and every dollar counts. With your help, we can reach our $80,000 goal and help hundreds of families impacted by pediatric cancer.
Our team goal is $3,500 and you can join us as a walker to help us reach my goal. Every walker who raises $100 earns the official AuroraWALKS t-shirt. It costs $6,000 to send one child to camp for the entire summer and our team can help ensure AuroraWALKS reaches our $80,000 goal!
Aurora Day Camp is Georgia’s only full summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, ages 3 1⁄2 –16 who are in active or follow-up treatment for cancer. Aurora Day Camp is a proud member of the Sunrise Association serving over 6,000 children last year.
This summer, Aurora accomplished something extraordinary by transitioning to an all summer long virtual camp that provided endless fun for nearly 150 campers who enjoyed activities with their friends and counselors.

We hope you will join our team, set a personal goal OR simply donate to the team page and this cause. Every dollar counts. While COVID has wreaked havoc on the world we live in, our very special children need us now more than ever. Thank you so much for joining us in helping to bring joy to children with cancer.
SAVE THE DATE: AuroraWALKS Virtual Celebration on Sunday, September 13th, 10:00AM. Celebrate with us as we reach our goal and I help host this Kick Off Celebration and walk with us virtually!
