UNC students are organizing a week-long summer camp for kids whose families have been affected by cancer – and they’re asking for your help.

It’s called Camp Kesem. Founded at Stanford in 2000, it now has more than 100 active chapters nationwide, including UNC and Duke, serving about 6,000 kids each year. (The word “kesem” is Hebrew for “magic.”)

The UNC chapter is currently raising funds for this year’s camp. On Friday, April 21, they’ll be holding a fundraiser event called “Make the Magic” at the NC Botanical Garden.

PR coordinator Ryan Herrera and fundraising chair Sarah Cline discussed Camp Kesem – and “Make the Magic” – with Aaron Keck on WCHL.
