Camp Ukandu: I first volunteered at Camp Ukandu in 2007 and have been back every year, except 2012 (due to vacation time). This is an incredible & outrageous week for childhood cancer patients and their siblings. They swim, go rock climbing, do arts & crafts, archery and much more! Oh, and the best part…. it is FREE for those attending. It costs approximately $1,000 per child attending. This covers the cost of food, lodging and fun! All of the doctors, nurses and counselors donate their time for the whole week. With your help we raised $1,888!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Back Pack Buddies: Did you know that more than 1,800 of our areas (Low Country) children go home EACH weekend with a back pack filled with food to make sure they get through the weekend without hunger. The back packs are filled with a well rounded selection to ensure proper nutrition. I have a goal to raise $1,500 for this amazing program!

{Since you have already registered during the first half of the year for the Camp Ukandu fundraising portion…. we are skipping step 1! But if you want to join, email myself at victoriaruns1(at)gmail.com and I will get you hooked up with all our fun}
