In 2018, Camp Sunshine will introduce TWO new challenges for our military warriors! For the first time events will take place on both the East and West Coast. Each will require endurance, perseverance, strength and will follow one simple mantra ... failure is not an option! Their efforts will help support military families dealing with the challenges of having a child who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
The first event will take place in Southern California on May 19th, National Armed Forces Day, when as many as 20 active and retired military participants will set out to complete an on the water marathon! That’s right, paddling 26.2 miles along the Pacific Coast in kayaks and on paddle boards concluding at the San Diego Yacht Club. Many of this year’s participants completed the Around the World Swim last year around Coronado Island, we are humbled and honored by their continued commitment.
The second event, that's right there's a 2nd event, will take place on August 23rd in Maine! Team members will recreate one of the toughest triathlon challenges. An unprecedented attempt to complete a nearly three mile open ocean swim, 60 mile bike, and 10K run. Each event will pay homage to one of Maine's toughest and most iconic endurance races.
The goal of these two ambitious, courageous and selfless missions is to raise a combined total of $80,000 for Camp Sunshine, and send military and special operations families to Camp Sunshine completely free of charge. No donation is too small to help us reach the overall goal.
