Rochester Rotary is launching an exciting new event to benefit children and young adults with disabilities who take advantage of Rochester Rotary Sunshine Campus.

The Sunshine Camp Trail Mix 5K will take place Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019 at Rochester Rotary Sunshine Campus, a fully accessible summer camp located at 809 Five Points Road in Rush, N.Y. In addition to supporting children and young adults with disabilities, participants also will have an exclusive opportunity to see some of the 157 acres of this private camp — through a mix of paved sidewalks and natural dirt trails. 

“Sunshine Camp is the only local camp of its kind that gives children with special needs unique overnight camping experiences,” Rochester Rotary President Julie St. Germaine. “We hope the community will come out and support this new event and help kids with disabilities just be kids while at summer camp, without any barriers to fun.”
