For Those Affected By Cancer, There’s Coleman’s Camp Mak-A-Dream
At Coleman, they’ve always known that camping benefits body, mind and spirit, but there’s a special place in Montana that takes the camp concept to a whole new level.
Camp Mak-A-Dream is a medically supervised, cost-free experience for children, young adults. and families affected by cancer. It’s a place where the outdoors and activities and friendships can melt away the difficulties of lives stressed by hospitals and treatments. For one week, fear and anxiety go into complete remission.
Coleman has launched a charitable giving and awareness campaign for Camp Mak-A-Dream — and they need your help.

About 8,600 kids, age 14 and under, will be diagnosed this year with cancer. The hope is that every healthy family who understands the power of connecting with nature will join in supporting Camp Mak-A-Dream. Together, supporters can ensure that more youngsters can attend this wonderful facility and enjoy life-changing outdoor experiences.
Scott Henrikson, senior vice president of Americas’ Sales for The Coleman Company, Inc., is taking on one of America’s most grueling outdoor challenges — a 100-mile ultra marathon across Colorado high country — to help bring awareness to Camp Mak-A-Dream.
Henrikson will represent Coleman and Camp Mak-A-Dream in the Leadville, Colo., 100 Trail Ultramarathon, Aug. 22-23. Martin E. Franklin, chairman and CEO of Jarden Corporation, Coleman’s parent company, will join Henrikson in the run to bring awareness to Camp Mak-A-Dream.
Coleman’s awareness effort includes a Web-based charitable giving campaign for the nonprofit.
