More than two decades ago, the actor Paul Newman founded a very special camp for kids with serious illnesses. His vision was a place where the joy of playing and laughing had a profound impact allowing children to reach beyond their illnesses and discover strength, hope and resilience. From this one camp, SeriousFun Children’s Network has grown into a global community of 29 camps and programs providing life-changing experiences to children with serious illnesses and their families, free of charge.
Today, SeriousFun serves more than 380,000 children and their families, including over 250,000 children from 50 countries. Paul always said, “It’s all about the kids.” In keeping with his philosophy, 100% of every donation directly benefits camps and kids, because 100% of the administrative expenses of SeriousFun are covered by their Board of Directors and Newman’s Own Foundation.
So many of us know children who are fighting serious illness and are helpless in the face of circumstance. With the Serious Fun Network, there are ways you can help. You can volunteer, participate in fundraisers, or donate money directly.
