NEW YORK CITY MARATHON
26.2 MILES TO BENEFIT CAMP KOREY
BRING A SMILE TO A KID
I joined Team Korey to fundraise and raise awareness for Camp Korey in the Pacific Northwest.
I did that by running in the New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 7th. (Here was my training schedule.)
Together, we fundraised $24,125 for Camp Korey through the extreme generosity of industry colleagues and friends.
Camp Korey provides transformative camp experiences for children who have life-altering medical conditions.
Kids with serious medical conditions miss out on the joy and adventure of childhood because of their physical limitations, their treatments, and their regular medical appointments.
But for one week a year, they don’t have to think about any of that. They can simply show up at Camp Korey, have fun, and be kids again.
Camp Korey provides safety, friendship, inclusion and fun.
All of the medical staff, cabin counselors, clean-up staff, and program facilitators create moments of magic every day for their campers.
No one is different at Camp Korey. Every kid is accepted for who they are. And all they have to do is have fun.
They leave Camp Korey with new friends, happy songs, and stories of the greatest food fight of all time. They also leave with greater confidence and resiliency in themselves.
If you’ve ever felt like you could just be yourself and that people would love you for who you are, I encourage you to join me by donating to Camp Korey. That’s their mission.
Camp Korey is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible.
