SeriousFun for All is a celebration of the global network that delivers lifechanging experiences to kids living with serious illnesses and their families, totally free of charge. The premiere showing will be available to stream on Sunday, October 18 at 6pm.  

Additional talent scheduled to appear includes: Aimee Mullins, Keb’ Mo’, Laura Osnes, Rupert Friend, Takuma Sato, Clea Newman (daughter of Paul Newman), and more.  

Although COVID-19 has forced the cancellation of our residential camps this summer, Over The Wall launched Camp in the Cloud – a unique and innovative virtual platform to continue to serve campers and families during the pandemic.  

Clea Newman, SeriousFun Ambassador said: “SeriousFun Children’s Network is founded on the principles of inclusion, community, friendship, respect, and hope, and we want to bring those to life for everyone who joins this event. While this event is free for all to participate, it’s important in helping us raise awareness and support for our programs so we can continue to deliver on our mission at no cost to campers and their families, just as my father intended.”  

The star-studded and inspirational event is a special show of appreciation to all of the campers, families, supporters, volunteers, and communities who have been bringing camp to life for kids for more than 30 years. The pre-recorded, hour-long production will feature celebrity appearances, and musical performances. In addition, the virtual event will also welcome SeriousFun campers from all around the world, from countries including the U.S, Italy, France, Israel, Japan and Hungary. Their stories, and those of their families, are sure to inspire. For more information, and to register to watch the show for free, please visit https://www.otw.org.uk/seriousfun-for-all/
