SunriseWALKS Long Island benefits Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island, the world's first full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, offered completely free of charge. As a program of the Friedberg JCC and a proud member of the Sunrise Association, our mission is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings worldwide. Sunrise accomplishes this through the creation and oversight of welcoming, inclusive summer day camps, year-round programs and in-hospital recreational activities, all offered free of charge.
More than just a walk, SunriseWALKS is our annual community event filled with music, games, prizes, and more! By joining us, you will be playing a key role in sending children with cancer and their siblings to Sunrise Day Camp, where they can forget about the hospital beds, and needles, and enjoy a summer camp filled with excitement, friendship, and fun.
