Camper Services Coordinator Brenda Starkins ran the full 26 mile LA Marathon and raised $500 for camp!

Volunteer walker Laura Good raised $1,210.00 for camp and was joined at Derby Day by her son James and niece and nephew.

The Kunsek family walked for their 4th year together as a family (this is the first year Sydney walked the full 3 miles without Kenny having to carry her!) and with the help of Paivika supporters raised $4,681.00!

We are so greatful for the great support and exceeding our goal of $5,000! We hope to recruite more campers and staff to join us next year for a great event and worthy cause!
