We’ll be setting up hug stations across Richmond. We think of Camp Kesem’s summer program as a hug to the kids we serve. These embraces carry them through hardship our kids face as their loved ones battle cancer.

Each embrace puts them a little closer to paradise. Hugs are free, but anyone can sponsor a hug for $5 and make those fuzzy feelings last a little longer.
