Volunteer Opportunity

The Sunrise Day Camp is the only full day summer camp for children with children with cancer and their siblings. These children can attend the camp free of charge.

They do various fundraisers, including an annual Sunrise Walk.

This year, the walk will be held on Sunday, June 8 at the camp in Wheatley Heights from 8:30am-10am

There'll be music, rides, prizes, face painting, complimentary refreshments and more at the finish line.

For information how to create a team to walk or to help that day, go to the Sunrise Walk website.
