RANDLEMAN, N.C. — The Victory Junction Gang Camp being developed in Randleman for children with life-threatening illnesses continues to generate support.
The camp — founded by actor Paul Newman and NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and his wife, Patty — has received a $500,000 commitment from the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation and a $100,000 donation from CPA firm Dixon Odom.
The camp also has named two founding hospitals — Brenner Children’s Hospital at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, and High Point Regional Health System.
Physicians and nurses from Brenner, which will refer children from North Carolina and southern Virginia to the camp, will staff and help equip its medical center and serve as members of its medical planning committees.
High Point physicians and nurses will help staff the camp. Hospital staff also will work with the camp’s medical planning committees and the hospital will help equip and supply the camp’s medical center.
