SUPPORT A CAUSE AT CONFERENCE!
Organizational Mission: To provide an environment for adolescents living with conditions of the bowel and bladder that encourages self-confidence and independent living.
For over 40 years, the New England Region of Wound Ostomy and Continence nurses have supported adolescents between the ages of 11-17 years of age who are living with conditions of the bowel and bladder. These youths have ostomies, inflammatory bowel disease, or urinary or fecal incontinence. The campers participate in a five-night one-of-a-kind experience called Youth Rally. The camp is held at university campuses throughout the United States in July. It is a life enriching experience for these kids to be among other children with diversions and similar health conditions.
SILENT AUCTION AT FALL CONFERENCE!
Each year during our Fall Conference, a silent auction is held and 100% of proceeds are donated to the Youth Rally Organization. Youth Rally uses the funds to support campers with scholarships and transportation assistance.
Over $9,000 was raised for Youth Rally at 2022 Conference!

All items up for bidding are donated to support the cause. Please consider bringing an item to be placed in the auction.
