Camp Patrick 2018
Well, after a few years of planning and some tough fundraising, we finally did it!! This last June, we hosted 55 kids for one week at camp. We had over 50 volunteers that donated a week of their summer to make camp happen. Camp Patrick is a week long overnight camp for kids with Spina Bifida. It is free for all the kids and 100% funded by the Patsy Reeve Foundation. It was an amazing week! You can check out the pictures and slide shows at www.camppatrick.com. If you want more information on how to help Camp Patrick by either donating or volunteering just go to the website or call us anytime. We need a lot of help from the community to make camp happen so please let us know if you would like to help in any way. Needless to say, Camp Patrick is not cheap. The average cost to send one child to camp for the week is $750. And since it is free for these families, all of our fundraising comes from our 2 events we host and the AZ charity tax credit. So please help us if you can!
Over the past 4 years, we have been able to help almost 20 students who are great people and need help financially. Last year, we were able to give 8 students $2500 scholarships to help them out. We have been able to carry on our mom’s passion for helping her students. Patsy was an amazing person. She was a mother of four and nana to 11 grandkids. Patsy loved her family more than anything and was a stay at home mom for a good majority of her life. As her kids grew older, she was finally able to achieve a career of her own. Patsy got a job at ASU West. Throughout these years at ASU, Patsy found a niche planning programs and working with student workers. She loved her job, but mostly, she loved working with students and helping them get through their college years. There are many students that have been affected by Patsy, and we know that she wished she could have done more for many of her students financially. There were many times when Patsy mentioned she wished she could get more money for her students in order to help them. Patsy’s love for her students is why this scholarship fund was set up in her name. It is a team effort amongst her personal family and her ASU family. Patsy was our mom… an amazing mom and person. She was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer about four years ago and battled it heroically. Unfortunately, the cancer eventually won the battle and our mom passed away on Dec. 18, 2013. She was still young and had a lot of life a head of her. We want to keep our mom’s legacy moving forward and do what she loved doing….helping students and giving them a helping hand. We hope to be able to give these scholarships for many years to come, and we know mom would be so happy that we are all coming together to do this. About 4 years ago, one of Patsy's grandkids was born with Spina Bifida. His name was Patrick, and he was born only a month before Patsy passed away. Patrick never got to know his nana, but we know our mom would be so happy her foundation is helping kids just like him.
