Camp Dreams Team presented checks to the Authentic Voices of America Camp director Jon Faucht and Wheelchair Basketball Camp director Jeremy (Opie) Lade.
Camp Dreams is a fundraising effort initiated by a small community of Business students and student advisor Eric Roche at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The goal is to provide financial support for deserving individuals with physical disabilities so that they may realize their dreams of learning skills that will help them realize their potential and establish independence by participating in a once in a lifetime summer camp opportunity at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in the summer of 2012. By way of a climb of Mt. Mckinley, the tallest mountain in North America, to grassroots "boots on the ground" efforts by students, hopes are high to make dreams come true! Consider making a donation today, no amount is too small.
