-Walk for Dyskeratosis Congenita Outreach. Glenn Peterson has been a friend to DC Outreach since we met him as our counselor at Camp Sunshine in 2010.  We were all thrilled that he returned to be with us in 2012.  Everyone who met Glenn could not help to be drawn to his warmth and friendliness.  He helped make Camp as special as it is.  Little did we suspect that Glenn cared as much about us as we did about him!  In early Sept. 2013 DC Outreach received this letter from Glenn. He will always carry a special place in our hearts.  We cannot thank him enough.

 

Dave and Nancy and all the DC families,
 
I have been a volunteer counselor at Camp Sunshine for the 2 sessions that the DC group has come.  I and my family just finished a marathon walk/run to raise money for DC Outreach.  My son, Dave, and I walked the 26.2 miles while my son, John, and daughter, Beth, ran 16 miles and walked the rest of the 26.2 miles.  My son-in-law walked 10 miles....my 7-year-old grand daughter walked 2 miles and my wife drove the water and refreshment van to keep us going.  My daughter in law and 7-month-old grand son in a carriage walked the last mile with all of us.  It was a lot of fun and certainly for a good cause.  My son's company, Eliassen, will be sending a donation on line and my daughter in law's company, Houghton Mifflin will be doing the same.  I also will have quite a few individual donations that I will be forwarding to you. I am not sure exactly what the total is since I am still hearing that people want to sponsor us.
......but it looks like over a thousand dollars!!! I have loved being a part of the DC family experience at Camp Sunshine and hope to be able to continue to be there with all of you wonderful people.
 
 
Thinking of you and all the DC families !!!
