Amazing what is happening long after camp is over.

camp10-10.31lg-1453A huge thanks to the John Wayne Cancer Foundation, The North Face, and the many individual donors who contributed throughout 2013 to make Camp Koru a huge success. Thank you to all!!

Below is a brief graphic report on our major impact to date. We measure the impact and effectiveness of our programs by the quality of the outcomes, not the quantity. Testimonials are one of our most powerful measures, and walking the talk is even more important. When attendees of Camp Koru leave camp and integrate back into normal life, most often there is a shift in direction. About 50% of our ambassadors report that they have either volunteered in their own cancer community or played a lead role in taking action in the cancer awareness and/or survivorship arenas. Inspiring leadership, passion and philanthropy in our ambassadors’ community is one of the goals of Camp Koru. As a value we aim to nurture and strengthen long after camp, volunteerism has an impact that touches thousands more lives than just the one we served.

Thank you for your support. If you are so inspired to make more impact, we could use your help for upcoming camp programs. Please consider making a donation here.  Happy New Year & we hope to see you again in 2014!
