“What are FUNraisers?”
FUNraisers are a community of generous and compassionate individuals teaming up to provide “a different kind of healing” to children and families who are coping with serious illness. No matter how you want to fundraise for Camp, there are plenty of opportunities to be a Hole in the Wall FUNraiser. If you’re runner, party planner or lemonade stand entrepreneur, you can help support Camp’s growing programs. So what are you waiting for? Raise some hell, raise some money and have lots of fun!
“How do I become a FUNraiser”
Participate in one of our premier athletic events or in an event created by one of our Camp friends. Or you can create your own event and set up an online fundraising page.
“What type of events are offered?”
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp hosts or offers entries in a number of annual, athletic events each year. To view the full list of the running, cycling and relay events we offer, please click here.
