camp hopefull

When we started life as a medical family, I knew I wanted to put my event planning skills to use to help raise awareness and funds for Mitochondrial Disease.  My husband supported this idea and asked me “What kind of event are you going to plan??” At the time, I wasn’t a fan of running – so a 5K was not an option.  What did I like to do?  I liked floating on the river with friends. It was a bonus that Lorelei LOVED the water.  So in 2017 I invented the “Float for a Mito Cure.”  We floated together for three years and then COVID forced us to go virtual for our 4th. 

In 2022, still facing the threat of the pandemic and no longer having Lorelei Earth-Side to float with us (and having Benji who HATES water) we pivoted and camp: HOPE FULL was born!

Join us for the second annual camp: HOPE FULL. This year’s proceeds from camp will go to the Apricity Hope Project to raise money for mitochondrial disease research AND AHP programs that will directly empower and encourage medical caregivers. 


WHEN: March 24-26, 2023 for those who are camping all weekend.  The main event is on Saturday March 25 though for those who are not going to stay onsite.

WHERE: Holiday TRAV-L Campground in Virginia Beach, VA.
