Doctor given award for JCC Rainbow Day Camp program

Dr. David Margolis, who specializes in treating children with cancer at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, has been named a recipient of the “Driven to Achieve Award” by the Donald Driver Foundation for his leadership in creating “Rainbow Camp” at the Albert & Ann Deshur JCC Rainbow Day Camp.

At the conclusion of the regular summer camp season JCC Rainbow Day Camp offers the full week program in partnership with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, where patients and their siblings or friends attend camp free of charge.

As part of the recognition, JCC Rainbow Day Camp – led by camp director Lenny Kass and a program of the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center – will receive a $40,000 grant to continue and deepen the impact of its program.

“Dr. Dave has been a fierce advocate not just for the kids in his professional care – but for every child throughout the community we’re blessed to serve,” said JCC President & Chief Executive Officer Mark Shapiro.
