We are honored to serve as the Event Chairs for SunriseWALKS- Long Island, an event that benefits Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island, the world’s first full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, offered free of charge.
As many of you may know, Casey, Sydney and Buddy are all connected to Sunrise – Casey is a counselor at the camp, and Sydney and Buddy attend as campers. All of us have seen firsthand the impact this organization has made on our entire family.
As Casey has shared, “I had the opportunity to be a one-on-one counselor for an amazing little boy who is in a wheelchair. On the first day of camp, I found out that he had a love for spider-man, so on the second day of camp I showed up in a spider-man hat to show him and the rest of camp that we were a team. Even with such a small gesture, I realized I had made an impact on this child’s life, and they had made an impact on mine. This past summer was truly the best summer I have ever had, and to be able to share it with my siblings, and now my family as the SunriseWALKS Chairs, is something I will always cherish.”
We are grateful to have the opportunity to give back to a place that means so much to Casey, Sydney and Buddy, and now our entire family, and we hope you will join us and make a bigger impact for these kids.
This year, SunriseWALKS celebrates together again, and the event will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2022 at the Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island campgrounds! Be a part of the Sunrise magic by walking with our team and/or making a donation!
