Dear families, friends, sponsors and donors of Camp CARE
Like all of you, the Camp CARE team has been closely monitoring the events of the last few weeks in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to the recommendations of the CDC and our government, we feel it is in the best interest and safety of all, especially the population we serve, to postpone our Camp CARE 5K, scheduled for April 18, 2020.
Our plan is to reschedule for September 12, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and make the best judgement by the recommendations we receive.
We are also in contact with our friends from Camp Lurecrest and COCA-I (Children's Oncology Camping Association- International) and will be discussing the effects of COVID-19 and the effects it will have on our upcoming camp season.
We will keep you updated as any changes unfold.
We look forward to being together as a Camp CARE family when the time is right. In the meantime, spread the Camp CARE spirit through love and kindness!
Be well and stay safe.
Camp CARE Directors and Board
April 18th, 2020 – McAlpine Creek Park
The 2020 Camp CARE 5K is just around the corner!
Did you know that this walk was originally started by a Camp CARE camper? He was so inspired by his summer camp experience that he wanted to do something to make sure that all children with cancer would find the same joy, new friendships and fun that he found at camp. That camper was Paul Jon (P.J.) St. Martin. In the fall of 1994, 16 year old P.J. started the first walkathon…in a wheelchair. Twenty years later, it has evolved into a 5K run/walk and is the largest fund raiser for Camp CARE.
So how did Zack get involved? Zack became part of the Camp CARE family in 1992. He was a camper, then a counselor, and eventually sat on the board of directors. When the St. Martin’s asked if Zack’s name could be added to the walkathon, his family was honored. Camp CARE provided support, friendship, laughter and a sense of extended family for him. It also provided an opportunity to be with others who understood the experience and impact of having childhood cancer. These young men epitomize what Camp CARE stands for!
