Miles 4 MOE Foundation

Vinny and I were fortunate to participate last Saturday in the Second Annual Miles For Moe Walk and Bike Ride Day. Emil "Moe" Renzullo was born with Down's Syndrome and other medical problems which required numerous surgeries. Moe loved his time at the summer camp formerly called Camp LARC. Unfortunately he passed away at the age of 12 in April of 2010 after being diagnosed with leukemia. Everyone who met Moe was touched by his spirit and determination. Camp LARC was renamed Camp MOE in his honor. The foundation was started so that families with special needs children who could not afford to send their child to the camp could do so. The foundation also helps families who have a child diagnosed with cancer. Although I am not a parent, I can't imagine the despair that a parent would suffer if they could not afford to send their child to summer camp. For the child it would be just as worse. This foundation makes sure that this doesn't happen. There was a great turnout despite the unsettled weather. This is a great charity. Here is the website to find out more and hopefully make a donation. Miles 4 Moe Foundation
