Local nonprofit is freezing out cancer | KSNF/KODE

WEBB CITY, Mo. — A non-profit organization takes the plunge for a good cause.

Camp Quality Ozarks held its “Freezing Out Cancer – Holiday Bash” at King Jack Park.

The afternoon started with the first polar dive at Paradise Lake.

Dozens of children and their families enjoyed watching a movie, coloring and taking the Polar Express trolley through the park afterwards.

Camp Quality Ozarks is a support program that helps children fight cancer and offers summer camp and other events throughout the year.

“I was a previous camper myself and I remember how important it was to me. I think it helps them to be around people who are going through the same thing. It gives them hope, makes the connections. And not only for the campers, but also for the parents, the brothers and sisters. Going through cancer is a lifelong change. So being able to come together as a family and have that support is extremely important,” said Kristin Patterson, executive director of Camp Quality Ozarks.

The camp relies on volunteers and donations to fund its programs.
