Elkhart-based RV maker Thor Industries has renewed its partnership with KOA Care Camps, which provides outdoor camping experiences to families with children battling cancer.
Thor Industries’ partnership renewal marks the fourth year it has worked with KOA and coincides with Childhood Cancer Awareness month, which is in September. KOA Care Camps support a network of more than 135 oncology camps across the country, serving 42,000 children and their families.
The funding THOR has provided over the past three years has supported cams in providing children dealing with cancer positive camp experiences where they receive needed medical treatment while building life-long memories. In addition to monetary support, THOR also has provided RVs for use in the oncology camp programs.
“Spending time outdoors is one of the many joys of childhood, and despite what hardships a child may be facing, they deserve a chance to create those special memories,” said Bob Martin, president and CEO of Thor Industries. “We are honored to help support KOA Care Camps and to do our part to lift the spirits of these children through the excitement of adventure.”
KOA Care Camps will also be joining Thor Industries to help raise awareness for its cause at the Dealer Open House event in Elkhart the week of September 23.
