2019 Candlelighters Fun Walk

Team Tarpinian

It's Candlelighters Fun Walk time again and I would love for you to support me!

This summer marks my 3 year anniversary with Candlelighters Houston and I am consistently blown away by the children and families I get to meet along the way.

The Fun Walk raises money for our services and programs which are offered FREE to children with cancer and their families. This past year I got to spend an entire weekend (alongside Taylor Leigh Morey Kelsey Neale Andrew Tarpinian and Jeff Tarpinian) with more than 40 families at Camp CLIFF, a getaway for the whole family. Many camps in Houston offer the child with cancer a getaway, but Candlelighters believes that it is very important for the whole family to come together away from the treatment facilities and their everyday hectic lives. Quality time as a family is essential in their struggle to beat the disease.

The cost to send a camper to camp is approximately $200 and this year we are planning on hosting 250 campers!

Whatever you can give, thank you for supporting me and for helping all the children with cancer and their families that Candlelighters serves!
