Timmy Walsh is looking forward to a busy summer. In addition to camps and get a ways, Walsh and his Camera For A Cure has included photo shows and sales and a Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders game benefitting Lung Cancer Alliance to his summer adventures.

CFAC will be participating in the first Jessup Art Loop Saturday, July 13. The Jessup Art Loop will run every second Saturday of each month from 3 to 8 p.m. and Walsh was the first on board for the inaugural event. CFAC will be hosted by Hopscotch Children’s Boutique, 201 Church Street, Jessup.

Just two weeks later, CFAC will participate in the Arts on the Square event on the Courthouse Square in Scranton. The event will feature numerous local artists and entertainers. Arts on the Square will be held July 27 from 12 to 8 p.m.

To wrap up the summer schedule, CFAC will partner with the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders and host a lung cancer fundraising event benefitting Lung Cancer Alliance. Walsh regularly raises funds for the LCA and has brought his love for the game of baseball into his fundraising efforts. Wanting to reach as many people as possible, Walsh is stepping outside of his perpetual fundraising efforts by putting his camera aside and taking on the job of enjoying America’s favorite past time (and his own). The August 18 game starts at 7:05 and will hold fun and relaxation for lung cancer patients, families and supporters at the PNC Field. Bleacher tickets can be purchased for $8 by contacting smcdonough@cameraforacure.com or calling 570-604-4355. All tickets must be purchased in advance. Supporters may purchase tickets to be donated to lung cancer patients and their families.

Camera For A Cure is a non profit fundraising project started by Timmy Walsh, then five yrs old. Walsh takes photographs and sells them with proceeds going to the Lung Cancer Alliance. Now, at the age of 11, he continues to raise funds for cancer research along with other diseases and causes. He is an Olyphant resident and a student at Wyoming Seminary Lower School.
