We’re taking the PLUNGE for Camp Sunshine and showing our heart-warmin’ side. Please help our team reach our goal by making a donation to our team or member of our team.
If you knew Hillary, you know how much she loved to help others. It is no surprise that she found a special place tucked away in Maine called Camp Sunshine, to give of herself and spread her endearing love for others. Camp Sunshine is a retreat for children with life threatening illnesses, and their families. It is also the only program in the nation offered year-round and is completely free of charge to families. More than 25 sessions are now offered annually, serving as many as 750 families (3,000 family members) per year. Since Camp Sunshine’s inception in 1984, it has served over 48,900 family members from 49 states and 27 different countries. If you've read this far, you already know why Hillary quickly saw an opportunity to 'jump in' to raise money for this program and its families... her love for this program was so contagious she easily talked me into jumping into below freezing water to help her raise money for this amazing program. She signed us up to participate in Camp Sunshine's Polar Plunge "Freezin for a Reason" fundraiser and we did it a few times together! This is something that brought us together as friends and I grew to love the cause as well as jumping into that freezing water with her! With our heavy hearts, Ann, Dan, Nick, Ty and I have decided to continue something near and dear to Hills heart by forming a team in her honor, affectionately named 'Hillary's Chucks'. Let's work together to keep Hillary's memory alive by doing what she loved, helping others
