Kate Bach Davis, Co-Founder of Camp Get-A-Well-A®
Kate's personal experience as a child who frequently missed summer camp has fueled her passion for Camp Get-A-Well-A. At an early age she was diagnosed with severe asthma. Kate spent many of her childhood summers in and out of the hospital instead of enjoying camp at the lake. This experience lets her closely relate to the Camp Get-A-Well-A kids.
Kate's professional experience also helps fulfill her passion at Camp Get-A-Well-A. Her background includes fundraising, grant coordination, event planning, and staffing and recruitment for Target Corporation, Save the Family, and Phelps Dodge Mining Company, among others.
JoLanne Hanson, Executive Director & Co-Founder of Camp Get-A-Well-A®
The Camp Get-A-Well-A labor of love started while JoLanne was coordinating Target's events for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It was here that she met Camp co-founder Kate Bach Davis. JoLanne's work with seriously ill children and their families at Target House and St. Jude's intrigued Kate, and together they hatched a hospital camp plan.
A plan takes money to operate, and making things happen on a nickel and dime budget is JoLanne's specialty. She learned how to stretch a budget while managing Bright Beginnings, a mentoring program for teenage mothers and their infants within North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, MN. As Executive Director of Camp Get-A-Well-A, this one-woman powerhouse finds ways to stretch your donations at Camp Get-A-Well-A's in-hospital summer camps today.
