SCOR will continue its tradition of donating to Camp Bon Coeur, Camp del Corazon and Camp Taylor, three children’s congenital heart disease summer camps designed to give children between the ages of 8 and 17 a medically supervised camping experience that they would not normally have available to them due to the severity of their illness and multiple heart surgeries. For more information any of these three super camps go to:
We continue to donate to the Long Beach Tour de Cure Ride every April.
