ThalPals United Camp
On October 15th, we will be riding in Spin For Kids to raise money for Camp Twin Lakes, an incredible organization that provides camp programs for children with serious illnesses, disabilities, and other life challenges and ThalPals United Camp.
Why We Ride
ThalPals United is a camp for kids with beta thalassemia intermedia and major and their families. The camp will be a wonderful opportunity for the kids to build lifelong friendships with other kids who share this disease. it will also give parents and siblings a chance to meet other families who are impacted by this life long genetic condition.
Thalassemia is a blood disease that affects the production of red blood cells. Patients with beta thalassemia intermedia and major survive by receiving regular blood transfusions. Most receive blood every 3 to 4 weeks. Because of the abnormal iron build up, they also have to take a daily medicine regimen to keep their iron at safe levels. The camp will help educate and provide a safe and fun learning opportunity for everyone affected by this disease and its many complications. Camp gives kids an opportunity to build their confidence and capabilities without worrying about their extraordinary day to day challenges.
