Airport High students aim to top $54K for Camp Kemo
For nine straight days, Airport High School students are raising funds for Camp Kemo.
And when it comes to money for kids with cancer, these students will do anything. From arranging a pig-kissing or a bachelor/bachelorette auction to sumo wresting and a zombies versus humans contest, nothing is off limits.
Camp Kemo provides a fun summer experience for children who are battling cancer. The Airport contribution paid for more than 100 familes to go to Camp Kemo last year.
The HiWire recreational facility in Irmo is conducting a “profit-share” for the Camp Kemo Fund on Tuesday Vella’s is doing the same on Wednesday and there is a freshman car was on March 12.
“We raised $54,000 last year,” said Tina Seddon, the teacher who oversees the students in the charity drive. She was on the site of a Color Run, last Sunday.
The students will work or play to get donations. On Feb. 27, they conducted a car wash at Hardees on Hwy. 321. On Friday, there will be a Food Fest. Students took a pig for a kiss to Springdale Town Hall on Monday.
Basketball, a lip-sync battle and soccer. Anything to get a crowd to bring a contribution.
