Walkers Let Their Light Shine

The 7th annual Laps of Light benefit walk was held on Sunday, October 13 at Jennerstown Speedway. Over 550 walkers from 23 teams came together to let their light shine for Camp PARC.

Everyone at the walk came with a common goal to walk for those with mental or developmental disabilities, while also supporting Camp PARC. The net proceeds this year topped $17,000, which will be applied to camp scholarships and our annual programs.

Teams and individuals were challenged to fundraise for Camp PARC as part of their participation. The top-earning individual raised more than $1,500 and the top-earning team raised more than $1,620.

Individual Winners were:

1st: Michael Trent
2nd: Sadie Wallace
3rd: Patrick Slezak

Team Winners were:

1st: North Star Elementary Girls Basketball & North Star Wildlife
2nd: St. David's Lutheran Church
3rd: Slezak’s Fighters for Life

The event included raffles, carnival games, Corn Hole Tournament, contests and Bounce Houses provided by Jump Crazy, LLC. The walk was lead by Danny Horner, whose parents founded Camp PARC in 1960.

Thank you to all who came out to support Camp PARC and let your light shine for others.
