Supporting Royal Family Kids Camp

There are over 3,000 foster children in Boone and Winnebago counties. The Mad Dash will raise money for camp and a mentoring program for these children. Our hope is to rebuild trust and self-confidence. Volunteers spend time showing the children that they matter, that they are important and that they are not forgotten. The highlight of camp week is "Everybody's Birthday Party". We sing Happy Birthday to each child individually and everyone receives a birthday gift. 

You can make a difference. You can change sadness into hope. You can help us confront abuse and change lives. REGISTER TODAY!
