The Painted Turtle, a nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles, California, provides magic and joy for children with life-threatening illnesses in year-round summer camp programs and outpost sessions across California. I, myself, was a camper in the Liver Transplant session and cultivated the confidence and positivity that I carry to this day despite my conditions and limitations. You see, Painted Turtle is more than just a camp to me, it is a second home. At camp, children are empowered to learn about their own medical care and are given the confidence to become more independent. Because of the incredible support and lessons I have learned from being at the Painted Turtle, I have aimed most of my life to give back for all these precious memories. I am training currently (follow me on Strava!) and am aiming to run this 5K in under 25 minutes. If you want to support, please feel free to donate and find out more about the magic by visiting www.thepaintedturtle.org!
