Children’s cancer charity, Camp Quality is launching its ‘Camp In’ initiative which will see families across Australia set up their tents in support of kids and families battling cancer.
With registrations now open ahead of its start on Saturday 4 July, 2020, families will have the opportunity to pitch tents in their bedrooms, backyards and living rooms to raise funds and awareness.
“Cancer doesn’t stop for COVID-19 so neither can we,”said Camp Quality CEO Deborah Thomas
TV and radio presenter, Jo Stanley is one of the many who will be pitching a tent alongside her 11-year old daughter Willow, husband Darren, and of course, Daisy the Labrador in support of the cause early next month.
Jo said that the period of isolation has given her a “small taste of what these kids with suppressed immune systems live with every day.”
Among the other ambassadors for the ‘Camp In’ campaign include Model, Michelle Alan;
And TV and Radio personality Andrew (Cosi) Costello.
The ‘Camp In’ initiative is sponsored by ALDI who will provide the first 1000 participants to raise $100 with a $20 spending voucher.
Ahead of the launch, CEO of Camp Quality, Deborah Thomas reinforced the need to make a change. “Cancer doesn’t stop for COVID-19 so neither can we…We are currently getting ready to restart our Camps and Family Fun Days to help our kids impacted by cancer, relieve the stress and anxiety of this heightened level of isolation.”
Camp Quality is a charity that provides services and programs for kids in between the ages of 0-13 years old who are battling cancer and aim to create positive memories in a positive environment. During this period of COVID-19 restrictions, Camp Quality’s ‘Camp In’ initiative is the perfect activity to spread awareness on the cause while keeping in line with the pandemic’s social restrictions.
