Camp Challenge 2016 was a Huge Success!
We are grateful for our volunteers, sponsors and donors!
Fighting cancer is a team sport. We give adult patients and their families
renewed strength to stay in the game.
As we head into the 10th year of Me-One Foundation, we are so proud to have completed nine amazing years of Camp Challenge for an all-expenses paid weekend family retreat where no one had a moment to even think about cancer!
Camp Challenge 2016 was another HUGE success with 32 families including over 130 campers participating this year. We have already started planning for our upcoming 10th year of camp, July 7-9, 2017. What a milestone for Me-One Foundation!
We couldn’t do any of this without our hundreds of volunteers, donors and sponsors. Thank you so much for all that you do for our Me-One Foundation and family. It costs over $85,000 to run our camp program each year and with your continued support we are able to offer our magical weekend for more adult cancer patients and their families.
From the moment our families arrived at camp this year, they were showered with cheers and hugs and welcomed into the Me-One family. Each family was greeted by their volunteer camp host who took very good care of them all weekend. The family host made sure everyone in the family experienced as many activities as they wanted to, and there were so many to choose from!
Camp Challenge volunteers constructed and created a beautiful spa experience including table & chair massages, manicures, pedicures, hypnotherapy, hair styling & makeup. Complete with individual rooms draped with pretty sheers and twinkling lights. Campers could enjoy and lose themselves in our many relaxing services all weekend.
For the more active and adventurous family members we offered high-octane adventure sports including archery, hatchet throwing, a zip line and even a climbing wall.
Even our “little” campers had plenty of fun things to choose from. Bouncy houses, face painting, tie dye, arts & crafts, swimming and even a Me-One original game called Human Hungry Hungry Hippo!
Every year we are so encouraged and even humbled by the amount of support given to the Me-One Foundation that we strive to offer even more camps in the future to be able to serve more families affected by all types of cancer.

Help send a Family to Camp!
Since its inception in 2007, the Me-One foundation has relied solely on private donations and annual fundraising events to fund the organization.
The outpouring of financial, volunteer, and emotional support we have received has been nothing short of miraculous. Because of your generous support we have been able to serve more than 1,500 cancer patients and their families at Camp Challenge, where they enjoy a much needed weekend away from cancer. Help us so we can help even more families in the coming years.
