To protect one another and our communities, we know that we must continue to be cautious while we wait for the pandemic to recede. We have made the tough decision to cancel the 2021 Richie Nelson Celebration of Life Golf Outing and look forward to 2022.
Though we will not be physically together, we can still come together to support the remarkable young people who will attend Virtual Ronald McDonald Camp (RMC) for a week in August. We hope that you will consider a donation this year, in honor of Richie Nelson, to help us reach our goal of $10,000 to sponsor the Opening Night of RMC 2021.
The oncology patients and their siblings who attend RMC each are incredibly strong and resilient. They are experts in adapting to changes and rising to challenges. Last year more than 100 campers logged online for a safe, virtual week of RMC. This August, RMC will once again be held online to ensure the safety of the camp community and campers will each receive a box full of activity supplies.
Campers will enjoy cabin time and participate in activities during the day like photography, cooking lessons, arts and crafts, STEM experiments, and more. Then each night the entire RMC community will come together for all-camp games, special guest entertainment, and even a virtual talent show.
Campers are in critical need of the connection they find at camp. If it is within reach for you, we ask you to consider a gift to support Ronald McDonald Camp.
