Chris's story

It was his decision, at age 21, to walk away from a job in finance to work at a summer camp in the United States that helped Chris Grumley set his life in a new, positive direction.

“It was a turning point. I was thrown into the deep end. I’d worked so hard to create this person after my mental health issues, the person I thought I was supposed to be, but at the camp I could reset. I could be who I really was,” Chris says.

He spent five months at the camp, supporting children from disadvantaged areas of Chicago.
