Bringing Comfort and Hope into the Lives of Children

Ella’s Retreat Fine Feathered 5K Run

On Sunday May 31, 2015, we had the delight of taking part in the Fine Feathered 5K Run, a notable, annual fundraising event initiated and coordinated by Ella’s Retreat. Ella’s Retreat is the culmination of the dream of co-founders Joe and Audrey Walsh for their seven-year old daughter, Ella.

It was also our great pleasure to make a grant from the Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund to Ella’s Retreat in support of the Fine Feathered 5K Run Day. We hope it will help Ella’s Retreat’s worthwhile program continue to provide temporary lodging for family members who must travel long distances away from home with children receiving treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for years to come.

The Susan & Jack Holender Children’s Fund’s hope is to help children with cancer reach their potential while bringing meaning to their lives and smiles to their faces.

In addition to Ella’s Retreat’s Fine Feathered 5K Run, the Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund participates in a variety of projects that promote the health and welfare of children. Because we have an all-volunteer staff, every dollar raised goes directly to the medical care, research, and support of children in need. Please donate to the Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund so that we may continue supporting important projects like Ella’s Retreat Fine Feathered 5K Run.
