2018 Red Balloon Run & Ride

We have a very exciting opportunity that we would love to share with you!  After learning last year that we will no longer receive funding for our October camps, we were fearful that the lack of funding might eventually cause us to eliminate that camp, since the cost for each family averages around $500 per camp.  We have recently learned of a fundraising opportunity that would not only raise money for our camp, but also would be a fun way to reconnect with each other outside of our regular camp weekend.  On April 21, 2018, Children’s Medical Center will host its annual Red Balloon Run & Ride, and we want YOU, our Camp Sol volunteers, to join us! There will be a 5k run/walk, various-distance bike rides, a 1k fun-run for the kids and lots of carnival games!   The initial registration supports Children’s Health, and every dollar raised by our team or donated to our page goes directly to pay for Camp Sol families to attend camp.

In order to support Camp Sol, please consider doing one of the following:

  1. To sign up as runner/walker/rider or as a virtual participant or to “sleep in for children’s”,  follow this link: Or if you prefer, you can also sign up by visiting the website and search for our team “Camp Sol.” Once you sign up, set up your fundraising page (see mine at and then recruit family members and friends to either sign up with you or to donate to your page.
  2. If you would prefer to make a donation, please go to the link above, and click “donate”.  Please share this link with friends and family so they can show their support for Camp Sol.
