AVON, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Checkoff Colorado allows taxpayers to make voluntary contributions to their favorite charitable organizations when they file their state income tax return. This year, eighteen nonprofit organizations, including Roundup River Ranch, are eligible for taxpayer contributions and are included on your Colorado 104 individual income tax form.
Roundup River Ranch provides children with serious illnesses, ages 17 and under, an old-fashioned, pure fun camp experience where they are not defined by their illness. At camp programs held throughout the year, children from the Rocky Mountains and their families discover the healing power of love, laughter, friendship and shared experiences. Campers realize they are not alone, find the courage to try new activities and build confidence. With full medical, physical and emotional support from healthcare professionals, staff and volunteers, campers and their families have the peace of mind to relax and experience the joys of childhood. And best of all, no camper or their family ever pays a penny.
“One silver lining out of this cancer journey is Roundup River Ranch. I simply cannot put into words the gift camp has given our family,” said Kelly Gates, Roundup River Ranch family. “At family camp, our family is able to forget about cancer and focus on togetherness, connecting and most of all fun.”
This year, Roundup River Ranch is excited to celebrate their 10-year anniversary. Celebrating their 10th year, more than 1,000 campers and their families will experience Roundup River Ranch as well as welcome their 4000th camper, a significant milestone within the camp community.
