CureSearch is proud to announce a partnership with Camp Quality USA, an organization dedicated to providing camping experiences for children with cancer during the 2014 CureSearch Walk season. This year, Camp Quality will be at 12 CureSearch Walks across the country participating with Camp Quality Walk teams, arts & crafts tables and teen tents.
Camp Quality USA in Illinois began their involvement with CureSearch at the Chicago CureSearch Walk four years ago. The organization was looking for another way to get involved in children’s cancer awareness and research. When they found the Chicago CureSearch Walk, it sounded like a perfect match. They have had a team at the Walk every year since, and love seeing some of the campers at the Walk.
Camp Quality is an important organization to Chicago CureSearch Walk committee member, Rick. When his son, Kyle, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma when he was 10 years old, his parents were worried that he would miss out on many childhood experiences. Then Rick found out about Camp Quality and he knew that he had found the perfect place for Kyle.
