SunriseWALKS Pearl River, organized by the Sunrise Association, gives participants the power to provide children with cancer a gift that will change their lives forever: the magic of summer. The walk and fall festival is the largest community fundraising event for the camp in Pearl River which hosted close to 300 children this past summer at no charge to the families. This year marks the 10th annual SunriseWALKS and our 10th summer at our camp at Sunrise–Pearl River. Camp Ramaquois will host this event again on their spectacular campgrounds.
The Sunrise Association brings the magic of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings at 11 Summer Day Camps around the world, Year-Round Programs, and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge. SunriseWALKS raises money for the Sunrise Day Camps, which are located in New York (3 locations), Baltimore, Metro DC, Atlanta, Israel (3 locations), Greater Philadelphia, and online (SunriseVX Virtual eXperience). There are eight SunriseWALKS events that span from June to October.
