The Ty Louis Campbell Foundation recently celebrated their 4th Annual Muddy Puddles “Mess Fest” on Saturday, July 30th at Camp Kiwi in Mahopac, NY. Attendees enjoyed a beautiful day of fun, laughter and mud in honor of children who are battling or passed away due to pediatric cancer. Parents, friends, volunteers, and, most importantly, children participated in several activities including a mud pit, food fights, zip lining, splatter paint and much more.
Approximately 2,500 guests from the tri-state area attended the event and more than $80,000 was raised for the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation in support of pediatric cancer research.
The Muddy Puddles “Mess Fest” is an annual event in memory of Ty, also known as “Super Ty”, Campbell, a young boy from Pawling who lost his battle against brain cancer in October 2012. Last year, the Mess Fest raised $75,000 for the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation in support of childhood cancer research, and the foundation was proud to surpass that amount in 2015!
