KOA Fundraiser for Care Camps

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A BBQ and bake sale took place Friday afternoon at the KOA Corporate Courtyard and at the new Angry Hanks to raise money for the KOA Care Camps.

It sends children with cancer to a summer camp for a week to be surrounded by other kids who they can relate to. A full medical staff is on board too.

"An awful lot of us are very blessed in our lives to be able to go out, do things like camping, get out and enjoy the great outdoors, go swimming, go jump on pillows. And kids with cancer have such a tough time. It's really a great break for them to be able to go out and enjoy themselves and forget about all the troubles that they're going through right now," says Teri Mundahl, an Administrative Assistant for KOA Corporate.

KOA Camps nationwide raised money Friday for the care camps. And in honor of the Care Camps big weekend, KOA is offering a free stay this Saturday night with a paid night of camping Friday.

Anyone still interested in helping the kids, click on Connections to donate.
