Nick's Courage 5K

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Nick's Courage 5K! I'm raising money to help the brave and beautiful campers and their families at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. 

My name is Ashlyn Mercier and this coming April I will be competing for the title of Miss Connecticut. As a candidate for Miss Connecticut I have the privilege of promoting a social impact initiative of my choosing. My social impact is entitled Nick's Courage: One Smile Goes a Mile. It is named after my younger brother who is a two-time pediatric cancer survivor. The mission of Nick's Courage is to bring positivity into the lives of children battling critical illness by celebrating, inspiring, and collaborating. What better organization to support as part of my mission, than Hole in the Wall Gang Camp!

Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is a community dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families through a variety of year-round programs. The Camp delivers fun, friendship and a healthy dose of mischief through its signature summer program and weekend sessions at the Camp facility in Ashford, Conn. as well as outreach to hospitals, clinics and communities across the Northeast. All services are free of charge.

If you are interested in participating in the Nick's Courage 5K head over to RaceWire to register. The link is nickscourage.racewire.com Not a runner? No Problem! You can make a one time donation to my cause through this site. Thank you so much for all of your generosity and support, together we can "raise a little hell."

With Love,

Miss Farmingbury 2022
