All proceeds from the Walk-a-thon benefit Camp Crescent Moon, an overnight camp for youth 7-14 with sickle cell disease! I have been a part of this wonderful camp for 12 years!
What makes CCM so special?
- For one week our campers do not feel "different".
For one week our campers are able to be around
other children and staff who have the same disease which gives them a high
level of comfort throughout the week.
For one week our campers are able to bond and
share stories that other campers can relate to.
For one week our campers are able to
have safe, fun.
For one week our campers do not have to worry about a doctor's
appointment, blood transfusions, or hospital stays.
For one week our campers are able
to be kids and play.
CCM campers are given the opportunity to create a support
system throughout the week and year. The support system they obtain lets them
know they are not alone during their fight with SCD because they are able to
confide in one another and staff.
- Please help us raise money for these deserving campers!
