On Sunday, May 19, over 500 individuals will participate in OXC, Ohel’s annual mud-run-style extreme obstacle race at Camp Kaylie at Ohel in Wurtsboro, New York.
This year, Ohel additionally takes OXC online, with a special 24-hour online Ohel Xtreme Challenge, where, without the mud, you can help children, adults, and families overcome life’s biggest obstacles. Ohel is celebrating 50 years of service in strengthening the community through over 50 programs and services that meet the ever-increasing and diverse needs of the community.
With a goal of $500,000, Ohel is on a mission to continue making giant leaps and is gearing up for its 24-hour matching donor campaign!
Ohel is committed to helping children find loving foster care, victims of domestic violence find safety, and elder adults find the ability to independently thrive. Over 1,200 dedicated employees work tirelessly to elevate the lives of those facing crises to everyday individuals facing everyday challenges.
“Knowing I have a family of support at Ohel Bais Ezra that deeply understands the needs of my autistic child, and delivers the best services that enable my son to thrive and the respite our family needs, is priceless,” comments an Ohel Bais Ezra parent.
Ohel helps those experiencing trauma and anxiety learn coping strategies, and, through Camp Kaylie at Ohel, enables typical campers and campers challenged by disabilities to have the summer of their lives and develop lifelong friendships at the ground-breaking inclusive summer camp.
“It seemed increasingly unlikely that our son with his unique challenges would ever get to attend sleepaway camp. Then something incredible and unexpected happened — Camp Kaylie.” A Camp Kaylie parent continued by saying, “We are enormously indebted to Ohel. The positive effect cannot be underestimated.”
Join Ohel’s Online Xtreme Challenge today to make an Xtreme difference in the life of an Ohel child or adult. Become a raiser or a donor by going to OhelMatch.org.
The 24-hour matching campaign will kick off at noon on Tuesday, May 14 and conclude on Wednesday, May 15 at noon.
