Camp Cole’s Kelsey Carter makes The State’s 20 Under 40 Honorees

In these uncertain times, it’s only natural for us to worry about the future.

For that reason, The State’s annual 20 under 40 recognition couldn’t be more timely. This is the 17th year that The State and thestate.com have recognized 20 people under the age 40 in the Midlands.

The 20 people honored here are some of the best young adults in the Midlands. They are already having an impact on our community either through their professions or through their volunteer and civic work. You’ll meet people who overcame — or are overcoming — some major life challenges. You’ll meet young adults who saw needs in their communities and took the initiative to meet them.

Midlands Gives Spotlight: Camp Cole

In 2004, at the age of 11, Cole Sawyer lost his battle with cancer. Cole was an inspiration to those around him, and a huge fan of Carolina football. Some of Cole’s most cherished memories were at summer camp, where he could truly be a kid and connect with other children who also had serious illnesses. After his passing, his parents Stacy and Scott sought to honor his memory through the creation of  a summer camp for children with serious illness and disease. Cole had a lasting impact on those who knew him, and the Sawyer family has dedicated their lives to honoring their son.

Crafting a New Footprint: Camp Cole focuses on multiple medical challenges

Camp Cole was born of tragedy. When she was 13, Kelsey Sawyer Carter’s younger brother, Cole, succumbed to a year-long battle against a rare form of cancer. After 54 chemotherapy treatments, Cole Sawyer died at the age of 11. Before his passing, he touched the lives of many friends and family members as well as contacts through his positive Camp Kemo experience. Grieving parents Stacy and Scott Sawyer, together with their close friends Deans and Peter Fawcett, were so stirred by Cole’s short life that a seed was planted to raise a camp site specifically for use by organizations that focus on the needs of children, teens, and even adults with fragile health conditions, serious illnesses, disabilities, and mental health challenges.
