Congratulations to Matt Chapman who impressively placed 9th in the 50+ Men’s Category and 99th out of 1000 competing for the 31st Anniversary of The 7 Mile Island Run, benefitting the Tim Kerr Charities.

Tim Kerr Charities were created by Tim Kerr specifically to raise funds for physically and mentally challenged children and their families. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit The Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for the Blind Children.

The Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children has been providing blind and visually impaired children an all-expense paid week of summer camp since 1972. Over the course of eight weeks each summer, between mid-June and mid-August, the Home operates a camp that offers many of the campers their first experience of feeling sand in their toes or tasting salt water on their lips.

The campers’ range in age from seven to fifteen years old and the home can accommodate twenty campers each week.
