Welcome to Alex's Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my Event page! I'm raising money to help the brave and beautiful campers and their familes at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
We are two students from UConn Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine and this summer we will be cycling across the country, from the west coast to the east coast. For the last 16 years, students from our programs have organized a Coast to Coast for a Cause cycling journey. Our trip will mark the 17th year of Coast to Coast for a Cause, keeping the UConn Health tradition alive! We are incredibly excited to plan our journey and raise money for The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp!
I am first-year student at UConn School of Dental Medicine. I grew up in East Longmeadow, MA, and graduated from Ithaca College in Upstate New York in 2020. I grew up in a family passionate for sports and adventure. For the last 15+ years, I was a competitive swimmer, and since the culmination of my swimming career at the end of college, I have found a new passion for cycling! I am so excited to take this passion to the next level and tackle the challenge of cycling across the country with my colleague, June, in support of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp! The chance to explore the country in such a unique way in support of an incredible organization was an experience I could not pass up. I cannot wait to share our journey with you all and make memories to last a lifetime.
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.
Please help me reach (or even exceed!) my goal. With your generosity, we can all share in the joy of knowing that we are helping to provide "a different kind of healing" to children and families coping with serious illness.
