I am excited to help my mother Maria Myler as a walker on her team, Maria’s Clan Spreads Smiles in AuroraWALKS, a virtual campaign to raise awareness and much needed funds for Aurora Day Camp. I am grateful for many good things in my life so proud of my amazing mother and we both would really appreciate your support of this magical mission.
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 whose mission is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide, with full summer Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, serving over 6,000 children last year, all free of charge.
While we cannot host AuroraWALKS in person due to COVID, our Clan across the globe and I are committed to this magical mission. Every dollar counts.
With your help; our Clan can reach our team goal and the $125,000 event goal and help hundreds of families impacted by pediatric cancer.
My personal goal is $500. Our team goal is $17,000. It costs $6,000 to send one child to camp for the entire summer and our team can help ensure AuroraWALKS reaches our $125,000 goal!
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. I personally know the challenges of virtual programming in my role at Zoo Atlanta during these crazy times.
Take a moment to watch this powerful video below.
While COVID -19 has wreaked havoc on the world we live in, these very special children need us now more than ever.
Thanks so much for helping me bring joy to children with cancer.
Our Aurora WALKS Virtual Celebration is on Sunday, September 13th, 10:00AM. I'll send me a picture of us as we celebrate my team reaching our goal!
