A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to run for Comfort Zone Camp's Grief Relief Team at the Disney World Marathon. The experience of getting to know some of their staff and what they do for kids put into perspective for me that it was time to run for a new cause.
Comfort Zone Camp is a place for grieving children to go and be a kid. A child who loses a parent or sibling deserves a chance for normalcy, and that's what these camps do.
Sending a child to camp, though, takes a commitment from donors. Without the generosity of others, these kids wouldn't have this chance to laugh, to smile, to play.
It costs $500 to send just one child to camp. And that's why I'm joining the Grief Relief Team for the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k in April.
But I want to go beyond $500. I want to get to $750. Getting to $1,000 would be even better.
