2020 Miss Q's ‘VIRTUAL’ CAMPQUEST Walk/Run
The fourth annual CAMPQUEST walk is going VIRTUAL!! Pick your favorite spot to walk or run on Saturday, October 3rd at 10 am as we raise much needed funds and awareness of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp’s work to support children with life threatening illnesses.
While the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp programming has taken a different look this summer to ensure the safety of Campers and staff, it has risen to the challenge of delivering much needed hope, joy and support in different formats. Virtual sing-a-longs and story times, virtual Caregiver Cabin Chats, virtual Family Weekends, Camp Care packages, streaming activity videos and 1:1 Zoom bedside visits with hospital partners are just a few of the ways Camp has continued to spread much needed magic to children and families facing life threatening illnesses through COVID-19. We want to make sure this much needed support for seriously ill children and their families continues now and in the future.
An elementary teacher for 41 years, Miss Quitadamo spent 30 years working for the Worcester Public Schools. She shared her passion for Camp with many of her students and their families who became inspired to embark on various fundraisers; and collected much needed items for Camp and the children that it serves. “While learning about Camp, my students displayed a great deal of empathy as they became aware of the challenges that other kids face. They also realized that Camp is more than a place where sick kids could have fun, it’s a program that heals their spirits! It provides fun-filled experiences defined by laughter, acceptance and compassion!” Many of her former students and families whose hearts have been touched by Camp continue the mission with Miss Quitadamo and the CAMPQUEST Team to rally community support each year.
Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp provides “a different kind of healing” to more than 20,000 seriously ill children and family members annually- all completely free of charge. For many of these children and families Hole in the Wall provided multiple Camp experiences throughout the year at the facility in Ashford, CT, in more than 40 hospitals (including UMASS hospital in Worcester) and clinics, directly in camper homes and communities, and through other outreach activities across the Northeast.
Since 2017 Miss Q’s CampQuest has raised over $47,000 for Camp. This year’s goal is to raise $20,000, enough to send 8 seriously ill children to Camp for one week.
Please help us reach (or even exceed!) our 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.
Due to the pandemic, this year’s walk has now turned to a VIRTUAL format… that means you can register, then pick your favorite spot to walk or run on October 3rd. You can still register as a team even though you may walk in different locations. Registration is only $10.
Communication will be forthcoming on how to post your walk day photos!
Thank you in advance for your support.
