Greetings:

This summer marks the 34th Annual Rittner Run, benefiting The Fred Rittner Pemi Campership Fund.  The Fund was established in 1983 in honor of long-time Pemi camper and legendary counselor Fred Rittner who died of cancer that same summer.  To date, we have granted over 230 camp scholarships in Fred’s memory to youths from around the country and the far corners of the globe.  This summer, the Rittner Fund is proud to be providing a record amount of tuition aid in excess of $55,000 in total support to more than 29 very deserving campers!

In 2016, we have set goals of further expanding our donor base, seeking more recurring (monthly) online donations, and increasing the capital of the Fund.  We wish to attract an additional 150 new donors, and we need your support to achieve our goals!  Our online donation system is easy to use — simply visit www.RittnerFund.org and follow the DONATE link to our PayPal page.  This year, consider making an automated monthly or recurring online donation “In Honor of…” or “In Memory of…” a Pemi VIP of your choosing.

If you cannot join us this year, please consider a generous donation to support our efforts as we log our miles in the August heat.  Every―and any―donation will help us to achieve our goals.  Even a small donation, when combined with hundreds or thousands of others, can have a positive and lasting impact on the Rittner Fund (501(c)(3), I.D. 36-3269039).  Our online donation system has proven to be very successful and easy to use.  Simply visit www.RittnerFund.org and follow the DONATE link to our PayPal page. Please join our efforts and make this year a rousing success.  No matter what the size, your gift makes a difference in the continued success of this Fund!

With warm regards and best wishes on behalf of the Trustees of the Rittner Fund,

― Peter Cowles, Trustee and Run Committee Chair
