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.
