The Moyer Foundation was founded in 2000 by MLB All-Star, Jamie Moyer and his wife Karen. The Foundation's mission is to empower children in distress by providing education and support, helping them to live healthy and inspired lives.
The Foundation's largest initiative is Camp Erin, free bereavement camps for grieving children and teens ages 6-17. With more than 40 camps in over 25 states and one in Canada, Camp Erin is the largest bereavement camp in the country, serving more than 2,500 children annually. Camp Erin is facilitated through a long term partnership with a local bereavement agency. Together, these organizations and The Moyer Foundation raise funds to help bring the healing experience of Camp Erin to children in more communities each year.
Since 2007 more than 420 grieving children and teens have been served locally at Camp Erin Philadelphia. For more information, contact Pamela at Pamela@moyerfoundation.org.
On May 17, 2011 Jamie and Karen Moyer hosted An Evening at the Ballpark in the Diamond Club at Citizens Bank Park. The Celebrity Waiters Dinner & Auction benefited The Moyer Foundation's Camp Erin Program.
Special guests who joined Karen and Jamie as celebrity waiters included Dickie Noles, Marty Bystrom, Billie Jean King, Phil Martelli, David Akers and Jon Dorenbos and Vince Papale.
