From Mike Brooks:

Ten Day Run, 500 mile goal, for Camp Sunshine
 On April
22nd I will start a ten day race to raise money for Camp Sunshine. My
goal is to run/walk 500 miles and raise $10,000 so that very sick
children and children with life threatening illnesses and their
families can go to Camp Sunshine.

 I am a 63 year old retired
Auburn firefighter who has raised money in the past for C.S. by running
a 135 mile race across Death Valley in July and doing a 6 day race
completing 320 miles. I have also done several shorter races for Camp
Sunshine. There is no way I could come close to accomplishing my goals
if I was not helping seriously ill children attend Camp Sunshine.

Your donations will not only help these children and their families but
will also motivate  me towards my 500 mile goal.  Please donate by
visiting or mailing a donation to Camp Sunshine ,35 Acadia Road , Casco, ME 04015 . You can also learn more about Camp Sunshine at .

Check out the donation website for more information about the race and how to follow my progress toward my goal.
know these are tough economic times so please be assured that any
amount of your donation will be greatly appreciated and will be very
motivating to me.
Thank You, Mike Brooks
