About The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation:
NASHVILLE, TN (October 25, 2016) -Platinum-selling group, Sister Hazel, hosted the 2nd Annual “Camp Hazelnut” at Camp Crystal Lake outside Gainesville, FL October 21 – 23, 2016. Camp Hazelnut began with a simple goal: for the band to create a playful, safe, uplifting event for children and families navigating the overwhelming challenges of a cancer diagnosis and to get together with their fans (the Hazelnuts) to share a unique summer camp experience. This year, with triple the available spots for youth and families, forever friendships were made. The band members and camp counselors led activities including archery, water sports, arts and crafts, alpine tower ropes course, songwriting sessions, singalongs, and s’mores at the campfire. Sister Hazel partnered with Wyc Grousbeck, co-owner of the Boston Celtics, to make the event even more special. Grousbeck will once again sponsor Camp Hazelnut in 2017.
“Our 2nd Annual Camp Hazelnut was over the top this weekend!” said Ken Block, Sister Hazel’s lead singer. “It’s hard to put into words what an amazing event this is. Hosting so many incredible kids and their families who are dealing with cancer is hugely inspirational. It was a great escape from the real world, and we all recharged and reconnected with extraordinary families, awesome Hazelnuts, incredible camp counselors, and unforgettable activities at Camp Crystal Lake in beautiful North Florida. This means an awful lot to me personally, having lost my own little brother to cancer when we were teenagers. We already can’t wait until next year!”
“Camp Hazelnut” is part of Sister Hazel’s “Lyrics for Life Foundation” (www.lyricsforlife.org), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Sister Hazel frontman, Ken Block, and his band mates founded “Lyrics for Life” in memory of Ken’s younger brother, Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with cancer that started at age 14.

Because last year’s event was so powerful, we have tripled the available spots for these kids and made them the focal point of the weekend. We have also partnered with Wyc Grousbeck, CEO and co-owner of the Boston Celtics.

All For a Good Cause…All for fun…And All for you :)…
Lace up your jogging shoes, rock your flip flops, or just come barefoot for a fun filled morning of Hazelnut high fives near the high tides! We'll all get together for a crawl, walk, or jog (your choice) along the beautiful beaches of Isle of Palms, South Carolina. There will be lots of laughs, some sea shells, soft sand, several pelicans, and a little exercise. Cruise up and down the beach alongside your favorite Sister Hazel band members and your fellow Hazelnuts, all for a great cause. Come on out and get moving with us…and don't forget the sunscreen!! 🙂
Sister Hazel's Lyrics For Life Foundation raises money for childhood cancer research and for other programs that support children and their families as they navigate the challenges of a life changing cancer diagnosis and it's treatment.
This whole event is designed to have FUN, get a little light exercise, to hang out and to benefit Lyrics For Life Childhood Cancer Foundation. The race course is a simple up and back route right on the beach. The beach will NOT be cleared for this so we will have to dodge a few beach goers. Personally I think this will make things even more fun. And remember, this is ALL about fun! 🙂 We will start right behind The Windjammer, hit the beach, and then all “Crawl, Walk, or Jog” south toward Breach Inlet where we'll all loop back around and finish up right back where we started.
