I am very proud to once again be the TEAM CAPTAIN of the AURORA SUPER STAFF TEAM for AuroraWALKS on Saturday, June 11th, benefitting Aurora Day Camp. Georgia’s only full-summer day camp for children that have battled cancer or are currently battling cancer and their siblings. Aurora provides a full summer day camp, year-round and in-hospital programs, free of charge to children with cancer and their siblings, aged 3 ½ to 16.

This will be my FIFTH summer working at Aurora Day Camp, and it has truly been such an honor and a joy. Getting to experience the smiles on camper’s faces, hearing from their parents about the meaningful impact of camp and being able to serve my community through these incredibly strong and brave kids, has truly changed my life. The magic of Aurora is seeing a child try something new, hearing a shy kid laugh, watching them make new friends, and it is the very pull that keeps me coming back every year. This mission is so important to me and has even impacted my future, by inspiring me to become a nurse. The memories that I've made at Aurora will last a lifetime, and I am so grateful for another summer at the best camp ever.

My personal goal is $1,000 and our team goal is $6000. You can make a donation to my goal, on the buttons to the right.

There are no other programs like these in Atlanta. Aurora’s 5th full summer day camp opens June 6th, and I can’t wait to meet 180, a record number, of very excited campers, who are counting the days to come!

Children fighting cancer and siblings all attend Aurora’s camp together, laughing every day, a priceless gift to any family. At Aurora, it’s not about cancer – it’s about fun. This is what Aurora does. 60% of our campers are under age 10, and 30% are younger than 8.

$6,000 is the cost to send one child to camp. Your support will help us reach our $200,000 Walk goal for these life-changing programs. Every dollar counts and every registered walker raising over $100 earns the official AuroraWALKS 2022 t-shirt.

Our Super Staff Team will all meet on Walk Day on Saturday June 11th at the WALK to celebrate with our wonderful camper families! Come join us if you wish, Family Fun Activities start at 8:30 Am free popcorn, sno cones and more, short ¾ mile Walk starts at 10:30AM

Thank you in advance and please HELP ME give summer back to children with cancer.

Sincerely,

THEA
