Jake Long AgentSt. Louis Rams star offensive tackle Jake Long and his wife, Jackie, will be hosting a sold-out fundraising event for about 350 people on Saturday, June 7 in Michigan. The goal of the fundraiser to raise money for a new camp that will provide children with serious and life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to get out of their hospital beds and onto horses, canoes and zip-lines.

Jake and Jackie Long decided to team up with the capital-campaign committee and North Star Reach in Pinckney, Michigan to create the camp after Jake visited several hospitals in the Michigan area. The fundraising event will also be attended by former Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, Oakland Raiders and former Michigan defensive back Charles Woodson, former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr.

North Star Reach CEO Doug Armstrong says the nonprofit organization has already raised $20 million of the $26 million needed to open the camp next year and give the referred children a free week of camp.

“If anyone needs to experience the benefits of a summer camp, it is the kids who have been cheated out of their childhood because of their medical condition,” said Armstrong. “There will be no financial barriers for the children because they will attend for free. There swill be no medical barriers because their health care needs will be met on site. And the social barriers will be removed because they’ll be surrounded by kids just like them.”

A groundbreaking ceremony for the camp is scheduled for July.

Jake Long was the No. 1 overall pick of the St. Louis Rams in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Since his debut in 2008 he has been one of the best offensive tackles in the NFL, earning four Pro-Bowl appearances and two NFL All-Pro selections.
