Running with the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp at the Fairfield Half Marathon

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is a community where children with life-altering medical conditions get to step away from life’s biggest challenges to embrace the spirit of childhood with their families.

Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman as the first site in what became the global SeriousFun Children’s Network, the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp provides an uplifting form of healing where every kid can, as Newman used to say, “kick back and raise a little hell.” Children have the time of their lives at the organization’s Ashford, Conn. campgrounds, participating in thrilling activities while making lifelong friends who share both their adversity and strength in coping.

Duggal Visual Solutions’ Jerid O’Connell visited the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and described a truly moving experience.

“At first I was overwhelmed and thought I might break down,” O’Connell said. “But soon the glow of this magical place and the sounds of these kids having such a great time swept me into the celebration.”

Extremely inspired by his visit, O’Connell put a banner into production at Duggal and joined the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in the 28th Annual Fairfield Half Marathon. O’Connell had a blast running with “Team Hole in the Wall” at the Fairfield Road Races, a nationally acclaimed event hosted every year by the Fairfield Fire Fighters to raise money for local charities.

What an all-around great day!
