Cancer survivor Sarah Kersey has an inherent understanding of the challenges that seriously ill children and their family members face, which makes her an especially valuable volunteer at Flying Horse Farms and two other camps in the Serious Fun camp network.
Kersey began volunteering in 2010, two years after being diagnosed with a tumor on her spine. She has worked in many different camp departments including programming, cabin counselor and as a staff leader.
Kersey has been a NASCAR fan for “as long as she can remember” with her favorite NASCAR-related memories being the times she has connected with a camper who shares the same affinity for Kasey Kahne as her longtime favorite driver.
Funds received from the Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award will go toward supporting additional psycho-social services to the children who attend camp each year.
