Yassine's run for Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp




 


Yassine Diboun is embarking on an incredible journey: He is going to run the San Diego 100 Mile Endurance Run on June 11th and 12th (with his legs), while raising money and awareness about Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp.

During the summer of 2010, Yassine worked as a counselor earning credit for his Portland State University Capstone Project. He was so impacted by the experience, he returned later in the summer as a volunteer.

This will be Yassine's 4th endurance run and he is thrilled to be connecting this race with Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp.

MHKC is a unique camp that provides excellence in outdoor experiences to individuals with disabilities, focusing on personal growth, empowerment, and the inclusion of all participants. For campers' families, the one week of camp may be their only respite from continual care of their family member. Campers, counselors, and families call it "life changing."

One of the largest programs of its kind in the U.S., each season MHKC offers a unique opportunity for more than 500 campers to experience the outdoors in its fully accessible 22-acre campsite. Despite cognitive, developmental, or physical disabilities that include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down's Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Cerebral Palsy, our campers enjoy recreational activities adapted to their special needs- adventure courses, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, cookouts, arts and crafts, swimming, dances, and river rafting!
