Race For A Reason - Hopecam

Race For A Reason - Hopecam Are you a Champion? Be our Champion! Race For A Reason for Hopecam and help connect children fighting cancer. Quitting is not an option for kids fighting cancer.
Hopecam, is a 501c3 non-profit charity with the mission of using voice over Internet technology to help children with cancer overcome the burden of social isolation. By virtually connecting these children with their friends over a video conferencing application, Hopecam decreases the loneliness and anxiety they experience during this frightening time. We provide the child with a tablet computer equipped with a webcam, Internet access in the home if the child is without, then work with the child's school to persuade them to establish a regular connection with the child during which the child can participate in classroom activities, and see and talk with their friends.

We have been operating business as usual since the pandemic helping to keep children with cancer connected virtually to their friends & classrooms and supporting educators as more and more schools transition to virtual and distance learning. We have some exciting things on the horizon at Hopecam and we cannot wait to share with all of you.

Racing For A Reason

This past weekend, Hopecam's founder Len Forkas completed the Blues Marathon in Mississippi with the help of Hopecam kid Aubree, and then he flew to Atlanta, Georgia for his next marathon - Back to Back Marathons!

After finishing the Atlanta Marathon Len met up with
5 yr old Hopecam kid Chante Ana who is starting her bone marrow transplant at Aflac Children’s hospital in Atlanta. He dropped off her new Hopecam tablet and Hopecam will be connecting her to her kindergarten class while she goes through the 3-8 week transplant. Len also surprised her with his medal from today’s race!

2020 Virginia Polar Dip: Team Hopecam - Camp Sunshine

On Saturday, February 1, 2020 Team Hopecam will be 'Jumping For A Reason' into a freezing lake in Reston, Virginia. We’re taking the PLUNGE for Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake and showing our heart-warmin’ side. Join our team or make a donation today! See you on February 1!

More information below about the event.

EVENT DATE: Sat. Feb 1st, 2020
Plunge: 2:00 PM
Registration: 12:00 PM
Location: Reston Community Center, Lake Anne Village Center, Reston, VA

Camp Sunshine is pleased to announce the 2020 Virginia Polar Dip. We believe that together we can send many more children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to our one-of-a-kind retreat in Casco, Maine.

With the strength of an event such as the 2020 Virginia Polar Dip and the resources of Camp Sunshine, it is our goal to raise in excess of $100,000.00. That is enough to send 40 families from the Mid-Atlantic area (including VA/MD/DC/DE/PA/WV/NC) to attend Camp Sunshine.

All participants who raise at least $100 will receive a highly coveted "I DID IT" event tshirt!

Too scared or too smart to take the plunge? There’s the option to participate in the “Chicken Dip” – where you’ll only need to dip your toes in!

Sign up today to participate in the 2020 Virginia Polar Dip taking place on February 1st, 2020 in Reston Virginia to benefit Camp Sunshine in Casco, Maine.

Hopecam Founder Len Forkas is taking on the Aconcagua mountain in Argentina and Racing For A Reason. Aconcagua is the highest mountain outside of Asia with a summit elevation of 22,837 ft. He’s enlisted the help of 2 Hopecam kids Libby & Luke to be his inspiration as he fights windy, cold, snowy conditions in the super thin air.

Yesterday the team was transported by helicopter to base camp at 14,000 feet called “Plaza Argentina.” The helicopter pilots need to know every gram of weight in the chopper to calculate how much fuel is required. There are three camps at 16,600, 18,300, 19,505 before the summit at 22,841.
