For the second year in a row, the Jack Tarver Foundation very generously offered to match every donation we receive dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $10,000! Our volunteer team took on this incredible offer by participating in our 2017 MatchMakers Challenge, and raised a total of $20,000 to give local kids with cancer fun for a week, and friends for life!
Thank you to all of our hard-working volunteers, our generous donors, and the Jack Tarver Foundation for your kind support! Your gifts will fund nearly 12 camper spaces at our upcoming camp session - giving local childhood cancer patients and survivors fresh air, friendship, and FUN!
Don't worry if you missed out on our fundraising challenge - you can still contribute to our upcoming camp session by clicking below! Your gift will change the lives of local childhood cancer survivors by providing peer support networks that last well beyond the week of camp itself.
Our year-round volunteers created four competing teams - each named after a classic cartoon in honor of our 2016 "Cartoons"-themed camp - and created their own webpage to share their story and why they are so passionate about raising money for Camp Casco.
