Thank you to our Summer Volunteers!

Believe Big is very grateful for our dedicated summer volunteers! This summer we were joined by seven students from Gerstell Academy’s class of 2018. From left to right: John Page, Maddie Bauhof, Georgia Blake, Kim Lapidario; not pictured: AJ Schwartz, Zach Brendler, Parker Lyons. The students helped at the Believe Big office, fundraised for Believe Big, and spoke with community members promoting the RVR Run! We are so appreciate of their help! Over the course of the summer the group will have contributed over 150 service hours.

If you are interested in volunteering with Believe Big please contact Meredith Harman or 888-317-5850.

Believe Mugs at Horizon Day Camp

On Tuesday, Believe Big held a Believe Mug painting for 75 children fighting cancer who attend Horizon Day Camp at Maryvale Preparatory School! The campers range from ages 5 to 17 and were an inspiration to all as they painted a Believe Mug to be fired, glazed & given to another cancer patient! Each camper also took home a Believe Mug today as a reminder to keep BELIEVING BIG in their battle with cancer!

More info about Horizon Day Camp –

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the pain and suffering they endure is unfathomable.  It also turns the entire family’s world upside down in ways never before imagined.

Horizon Day Camp is a full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge.

Providing memorable summers since 2006 for children ages 3 1/2–16, Sunrise Day Camps bring the simple pleasures of childhood back to children struggling with cancer, changing months of loneliness and isolation into summers filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. And because Sunrise is a day camp, it does all this while allowing the children to continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night. There are currently seven  Day Camps  — three in New York (Long Island, Pearl River & Staten Island), three in Israel (Beit Yehoshuah, Be’er Sheva & Ramat Yochanan) and Horizon Day Camp in Baltimore, Maryland.  Sunrise Association Day Camps are affiliated with 30 renowned hospitals and medical centers. Sunrise Sundays and Fun-days offer children exciting activities and events when school is not in session; Sunrise on Wheels is a one-of-a-kind program that provides hours of Sunrise-fun to children undergoing treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals.
