Thank you for donating in support of Horizon Day Camp, a cause near and dear to us (Barb & Neil) and our team members on Team Demchick.
We are thrilled to again support Horizon Day Camp. Based in Baltimore, Horizon is Maryland's only FREE, full summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, and the organization also provides year-round in-hospital and recreational programming. We both have been advocates and supporters of Horizon Day Camp since it opened in 2016 (Neil as a proud member of Horizon's Leadership Board). We have had the good fortune of visiting camp multiple times, and we have heard directly from parents who describe their experience, with great appreciation, as life-changing and a genuine blessing.
Particularly now when we all find ourselves longing for normalcy and security amid the pandemic challenges, we are reminded that in many ways this is how the Horizon children and families live year-round - outside of Horizon Day Camp. However, at Horizon, all programming is geared toward returning the joys of childhood for these children. The camp season and year-round programming includes a robust combination of learning, friendships, encouragement, and new and special experiences - all amid a safe, inclusive environment. Everything is free for the families, including transportation from hubs across the region.
We invite you to join Team Demchick at HorizonWALKS! Thanks to many generous people, Team Demchick has been a leading fundraising team in prior years. With your help, we are setting a big goal and hoping that Team Demchick can raise $10,000, which is the average amount to send two children to camp for the summer. Even this summer as the camp has gone virtual for safety reasons, the tenants of camp remain true as we provide a bit of hope, humanity and childhood fun for all the children at a time when they need it most.
Thank you for considering support! It will be our privilege to walk side by side with you - in person or figuratively. Together, we walk so they can SOAR!
Neil, Barb, & Team Demchick
