Thank you so much for all the help and support you continue to provide each year as I continue to sponsor more and more families to attend Camp Sunshine. This year is a little different than years past, but I still think it is important to support Camp Sunshine. I want to make sure that children like Elizabeth, and families like mine have the opportunity to continue to attend Camp Sunshine in the future.
So, if we can't physically be together to run the Beach to Beacon 10k in Maine this year, let's spread the sunshine with a virtual run or walk for Camp this year. Over the past 8 years, we have raised over $105,000 to support Camp. My goal for Team Elizabeth in 2020 is to raise $2,500, enough to sponsor one family to attend Camp in the future.
Today, May 19th is my goddaughter Elizabeth's 15th birthday, 15!!! I can't believe that it has been 14 years since her diagnosis, and that it's been over 7 years since Elizabeth got her angel wings. Although I miss her every day, I see her shine though in every bit of love and strength I experience, and I am so proud to have had the opportunity to share in Elizabeth's amazing life. She has always been my hero and will continue to be my inspiration every single day. I know some of you have never met her, but I hope every time you eat a slice of pizza with garlic and cheese or snack on some Swedish fish, you think of Elizabeth. We all know how much she loved a good party!
I am so proud to honor Elizabeth every year in raising funds for Camp Sunshine in Casco, Maine. She and our family have attended Camp Sunshine (and loved it) many times during and after her fight against cancer. Camp Sunshine was one of Elizabeth's favorite places. Camp continues to provide community and support for all of us, so it's time to once again pay it forward.
