Phillies Pitcher Jamie Moyer and Wife Karen Continue National Expansion - Bringing Bereavement Camps for Kids to Every Major League Baseball City
Date:3/4/2008

The Moyer Foundation to Open Camp Erin in 10 New Cities This Year; Targets

29 Cities by 2009

SEATTLE, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Moyer Foundation (http://www.moyerfoundation.org) today announced plans to expand its Camp Erin -- bereavement camps for children -- nationally to 10 new cities this year with a five-year goal of having a Camp Erin available to children in every major league baseball city and additional cities across the country. This nationwide expansion is made possible through The Moyer Foundation's Campaign for Kids, a $10 million fundraising campaign launched in March 2007.

Founded in 2000 by Major League All-Star pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife Karen, The Moyer Foundation provides comfort and support to children during times of profound physical, emotional or financial distress. With community support, The Moyer Foundation has raised over $14 million to assist over 140 different organizations that serve the needs of children in distress. In addition to supporting organizations through grants, The Moyer Foundation created and funds Camp Erin, the largest national network of bereavement camps for children ages 6-17 who are grieving the loss of a family member or friend.

"Children inspire us every day to do what we do at The Moyer Foundation," said co-founder Jamie Moyer, father of seven and starting pitcher with the Philadelphia Phillies. "Strong community involvement allows us to expand Camp Erin. Working together, we have a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children around the country."

Camp Erin is free to all children and is a weekend-long experience filled with traditional camp activities. Bereavement experts and trained volunteers facilitate and provide education and emotional support to each child throughout the weekend. The Moyer Foundation teams up with national advocates such as professional athletes
