California FairPlay is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2001. We provide educational assistance to children who suffer from Asthma. This is achieved by organizing each summer a camping experience free of cost to children with mild to severe asthma. All California FairPlay activities including the camp are supported by donations. California FairPlay is based in Rancho Murieta, California and serves the greater Sacramento Region.
