Miles for Moe Foundation:
A Local Cause For Our Local Kids
and have "The Best Day EVER!" ~ Emil "Moe" Renzullo, Jr.
Miles for Moe is an event that is growing and changing every year! We offer participants the option of a 5K Walk or Bike Ride consisting of distances from 12 to 75 miles! This year's event includes a Kid's Fun Run at Fuessenich Park and a Blood Drive for those who are able to give the gift of blood, plus lots of fun activities for families.
Established in memory of Emil "Moe" Renzullo, Jr., a very special boy who passed away from Leukemia in 2010. The Miles 4 Moe Foundation Fund is dedicated to raising funds to benefit our local children. While most of the monies raised goes to Moe's beloved camp, Camp Moe, The Miles 4 Moe Foundation Fund reserves funds to give back to our community. Every year we strive to do more for our children! We hope that you will come and be a part of what Moe would say is "the best day EVER!"
Camp Moe has been operating for over 38 years and has earned high regard as a model for inclusive camp programming. All campers are included in all activities. The mission of Camp Moe is to provide an ideal outdoor recreation environment where all children have the opportunity to develop friendships, leadership, self awareness and respect for others. Campers pick the activities they would like to participate in which include swimming, arts & crafts, archery, and rope course.
