Description

We Run So They Can Soar 5K is raising money to support Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island. Sunrise Day Camp–Long Island is the world’s first full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge. With 106 campers enrolled in 2006, Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island just completed its 10th summer with more than 500 campers enjoying the expansive campgrounds. The fun, friendship and smiles continue year round through various camp-like programs and in-hospital services. All donations go directly to Sunrise to help send these children to this camp, that runs entirely on donations.

This race will not be officially timed, however there will be a clock for you to personally record your time.

We want to make sure that we can donate as much money as possible to this amazing cause.

Please come out and run or walk and help us send a child to camp.

Our Story

As a former Sunrise Day Camp counselor, I have seen firsthand the amazing things this organization does. Throughout my time at Sunrise, I have both lost campers, coworkers, and best friends, but I have also seen children who have gone into remission, finished treatments, and even donated bone marrow to save a sibling's life. These children are beyond awe-inspiring, and have personally taught me how to appreciate and respect the life you are given. It costs $6,000 to send one child to camp. Without donations, these children might not have been given the opportunity to experience make camp memories that many people may take for granted.
