Phillies Pitcher Jamie Moyer and Wife Karen Bring Bereavement Camp for Kids to Orange County
Date:11/18/2009

SEATTLE, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The Moyer Foundation - a non-profit organization established by World Series champion, All-Star MLB pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen, and the Spencer Hospice Foundation have announced the opening of Camp Erin Orange County, a special camp for children and teens ages 6-17 who've lost someone close to them.

Camp Erin Orange County is one of 10 new camps opening in 2010, made possible by The Moyer Foundation's Campaign for Kids, a nationwide fundraising effort to help establish and fund as many as 60 new camps by 2012 - including one camp in every Major League Baseball city. Through the support of individuals, corporate sponsors and partner organizations nationwide, Camp Erin has become the largest network of bereavement camps in the country, with 38 camps in 23 states and one in Canada.

The Moyer Foundation partners with hospitals and hospice and bereavement organizations in local communities to help fund, manage, and grow Camp Erin nationwide. Bereavement experts and trained volunteers from the Spencer Hospice Foundation (www.spencer-foundation.org), will help facilitate and raise additional funds to support Camp Erin Orange County, which is free to all children grieving the loss of someone close to them.

"My wife Karen and I are grateful to everyone who is getting involved to help support Camp Erin in their local communities and on a national level, bringing this much needed service to more children in more cities each year," said Jamie Moyer, Co-Founder of The Moyer Foundation.

The Moyer Foundation is raising funds through special events in target cities and both local and national corporate partners to help fund the expansion. In May 2009, the Foundation announced a multi-year grant from the New York Life Foundation to help support Camp Erin in multiple cities across the country.'/>"/>
