Chris and I are very excited to help our good friend Maria Myler as walkers on her team, Maria’s Clan Spreads Smiles in AuroraWALKS, a virtual campaign to raise awareness and much needed funds for Aurora Day Camp.
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, all free of charge.
Aurora gives families normality, hope, relief, and a unique opportunity for patients and siblings to be together. Aurora Day Camp is not about cancer, it’s about fun and children being children. The Camp is a proud member of the Sunrise Association whose mission is to give 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 this year, our Clan across the globe and we are committed to support this magical mission through this virtual campaign.
We’re so proud to help Maria. We play tennis together and enjoy Maria’s energy, and her love of life and her family. Please support Maria’s team and this important 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. Please take a moment to watch this powerful video below.
Chris' and my personal goal is $2,000 and our team goal is $18,000. It costs $6,000 to send one child to camp for the entire summer. Your donation can help ensure AuroraWALKS reaches the $125,000 goal to help hundreds of families impacted by pediatric cancer. Every dollar counts.
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 Maria and the Aurora team bring joy to children with cancer.
Our Aurora WALKS Virtual Celebration is on Sunday, September 13th, 10:00AM. We will send you a picture of us as we celebrate our team reaching our goal!
