During its Courageous Kids Carnival, Sioux Falls Morning Optimists provided a check to Camp Bring It On for $16,000. The Camp is part of Sanford Health, and it's for kids who either are battling or have battled cancer. Camp Director Marilee Kontz says that the camp will use the donations towards the various programs and activities at Camp Bring It On.
“When I take a look at these kids, they don't have cancer. They're normal kids to me and we can do absolutely anything and everything we want to,” Kontz said.
Over the last nine years, Sioux Falls Morning Optimists has donated more than $100,000 to the camp.
