Miss Quitadamo's CAMPQUEST:
A FUNraiser to Benefit
the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
The second annual CAMPQUEST walk takes place on Sunday, April 29th from 10 am to noon at Commerce Bank Field at Foley Stadium, 305 Chandler Street in Worcester, MA.
An elementary school 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.
“As an educator, I always wanted to teach my students how important it is to be a caring and productive citizen, being cognizant of the needs of others,” explains Miss Quitadamo. “While learning about Camp, my students displayed a great deal of empathy as they became aware of the challenges that other kids face. Most importantly, they realized their caring actions could make a difference. Now many of the students whose hearts were touched by Camp, are trying to touch the hearts of others by rallying community support for the 2nd annual CAMPQUEST.”
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, The Hole in the Wall provides multiple Camp experiences throughout the year at the facility in Ashford, Connecticut, in more than 40 hospitals and clinics, directly in camper homes and communities, and through other outreach activities across the Northeast.
Miss Quitadamo’s first "CAMPQUEST" took place in May, 2017 and raised nearly $10,000… enough to send four seriously ill children to Camp! This year, the goal is to send six seriously ill children to Camp by raising $15,000!
The 2nd Annual CAMPQUEST: A FUNraiser Walk to Benefit The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, is hosted by the Worcester Public Schools. The walk takes place on Sunday, April 29th, beginning at 10:00 am at Commerce Bank Field at Foley Stadium, 305 Chandler Street in Worcester. It is open to the public and the event will include music, raffles and entertainment.
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.
The walk is open to the public and teams are welcome!
Thank you in advance for your support.
