Trivium Racing is excited to announce that our new charity partner for the 2015 Greensboro Marathon will be Victory Junction! This is a great local camp that was founded for kids with chronic medical conditions in honor of Adam Petty in 2004. Here is a little more about what they do, in their own words:
“Victory Junction enriches the lives of children with serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, at no cost to children or their families.
Since opening our gates in 2004, our year-round programs not only challenge campers to find resilience by looking beyond their illness, but provide a safe place to try new things under unobtrusive, complete 24-hour medical supervision. Our state-of-the-art facilities are intentionally designed to be accessible and inclusive for all campers affected by one of the many diagnoses served at camp.
Victory Junction strives to create a foundation that fosters independence, confidence and continuous growth after camp to better the quality of life for children. We are honored to have provided camp to children from all 50 states, as well as several foreign countries. Victory Junction is a member of Paul Newman’s renowned SeriousFun Children’s Network and is accredited by the rigorous guidelines of the American Camping Association.”
We are truly thrilled to be working with such a great organization that is based right here in our local community. We encourage you to check out their website and see how you can get involved. They need help with everything, from financial and in-kind donations, to volunteers, to sewers who can make the teddy bears that each camper takes home after their stay. And if you ever have a chance to get down to the camp and check it out, don’t pass it up, it is a magical experience.
