Calling All Heroes

We’re in need of some heroes who are looking to tee off at Bangor Muni on Monday, July 29th. It’s the annual Heroes | Hope | Healing Golf Classic to help fund Camp Hope and other patient care initiatives at Norther Light Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Raish Peavey Haskell Children’s Cancer and Treatment Center.

If you’re not familiar with Camp Hope, it’s a week-long summer camp for kids with cancer and their families. Camp Hope is a partnership between Eastern Maine Medical Center and the Bangor Y. The campers head to Camp Jordan in late June / early July each year, and because of local golfers, it’s free for families.

For the kids, it’s a week of fun in the sun. It’s a week of jumping off the docks, canoeing, arts and crafts, and walking among the trees along the Ropes Course. For the parents, it’s a week to take their mind away from a scary diagnosis, but it’s also a chance to get together with families who are walking in similar shoes.

If you are interested in fielding a team of four, please call us at Northern Light Health Foundation at 973-5055.
