Fishers Fire and Emergency Services personnel will be at the Fishers Texas Roadhouse on Tuesday, April 29 from 5:00 to 8:30 pm to help greet diners and serve tables in support of Hoosier Burn Camp.
Diners can present the event flyer on their smartphone or a printed copy and 10% of their bill will go to camp. They can also donate directly to any of the firefighters. The annual goal is to raise enough money to cover the week’s cost for one camper, which is estimated to be over $1,000.
“Hoosier Burn Camp is a unique opportunity for kids who have survived serious burns to get together in a place where they can share in fellowship and activities designed just for them. ” said Fishers Fire Chief Steven Orusa. “We’re excited to help create more opportunity for children to attend camp and the other great programs being offered.”
Hoosier Burn Camp has the mission of being “A Place to be Just One of the Kids”, providing young burn survivors a week away from their surroundings to participate in a week of typical camp activities and confidence-building programs. Campers often overcome fears associated with their injuries and scars, like being seen wearing shorts or a bathing suit, or talking openly about their injuries with other campers.
“Hoosier Burn Camp has become more than just a week at summer camp” said Mark Koopman, Executive Director of Hoosier Burn Camp. “We’ve been able to offer more programs throughout the year to reach kids too young to go to camp, teens specific activities, and along the way provide opportunities for their parents to support each other. All of this would not be possible without the generous help of our supporters”.
