Every year a special carnival is held to raise money so kids with cancer can go to camp. And at this year's 8th Annual Mo's Courageous Carnival, hundreds came out to show their support.
The Morning Optimist Club holds the event to raise money for 'Camp Bring It On.' At the camp, kids with cancer, or those in remission, get a chance to get away from the hospital to just be a kid. Mo's Courageous Carnival is one of the biggest fundraising events the group holds. At the event there are games for the kids, and raffle tickets for the adults to help raise money.
"We feel like we couldn't have done a better thing than to give these kids, (the opportunity to go to a camp) and their parents even like it. They get a break at home and they can relax a little bit because they know their kids are being taken care of at camp,” said Jack Dyvig, Morning Optimist.
The goal was to raise more than $10,000 at Saturday’s event. At around $715 per child, the money will pay for 14 kids to attend the camp.
