Smestad's Knights began as a Relay for Life Team in March of 2014 as a way of honoring a Calhoun High School World History teacher, Doug Smestad, after he had been ​diagnosed with cancer.

With his recent passing, we have decided to honor him in a new way. Smestad's Knights is now fundraising for two different organizations:

  • Sunrise Day Camp offers kids with cancer the same opportunity of going to camp that other kids get. Campers get to meet kids who go through the same things they do while making life long connections.
  • Candlelighters provides support and resources for families dealing with pediatric cancer.

Seeing how Doug dedicated his life to the next generation it seems fitting that Smestad's Knights does the same.

Our event this year is dubbed SmesFest and intends to be a music festival with medieval elements. We look to include everything Smes loved in life (Renaissance, "Lord of the Rings," rock music, "Star Wars," etc.)

The current date we are slated for is June 18, 2016 at Sunrise Day Camp in Wheatley Heights.

For this all to happen though, we need your help. Any amount helps and please help to spread the word by sharing this as well as visiting our new site:
