“Every camper deserves to have a true camp experience (nature hikes, rock climbing, swimming, fishing) and I am hoping to help make that a possibility for many excited individuals,” said Jeremy. “While I will be enhancing the lives of hundreds of children and adults with disabilities through these projects, I am confident my life will be impacted even more through the interaction I will have with these campers.”
In order to participate in this amazing event, Jeremy must raise $4,000 for Push America by June 1 to cover the cost of materials. Please make a tax-deductible donation to Push America on Jeremy’s behalf to help bring greater happiness and opportunity to people with disabilities across the country.
