A ‘Rare’ Gift From Our Friends at Shire

In celebration of the company’s 30th anniversary, Shire plc is granting SeriousFun Children’s Network $3 million to enable campers coping with rare illnesses to have a life-changing experience at camp, and help their families to bond through Family Weekend programs. In addition, educational opportunities, made possible thanks to Shire, will strengthen the ability of our camps to serve children living with rare diseases.


(L-R) Meredith, a camper at Camp Boggy Creek, Ava, camper Mom, Clea Newman for SeriousFun, and Linn Parrish for Shire introduced SeriousFun to senior Shire executives at a town hall meeting earlier this month.

The gift, part of Shire’s Future Generation program, reflects the company’s established commitment to doing business responsibly and ethically—and to create long-term value for all stakeholders. With its annual gift of $1 million for the next three years, Shire will enable nearly 1,000 children, many with rare diseases, to attend camp and receive a transformational SeriousFun experience.

SeriousFun is incredibly grateful to Shire for its generosity and commitment to enabling people with life-altering conditions lead better lives.
