Camp for a Cause 2022

presented by

It’s time to dust off your camping gear (and maybe add some winter layers) because at the 4th annual Camp for a Cause we will Trek to Everest as we support kids facing cancer!

A cancer diagnosis can be an uphill battle for any family. This night of camp-inspired food, drinks and games aims to make that climb a little easier. This is no sit-down gala! It’s an fun night of team-challenges where groups of 4 compete against one another to get their name on our coveted camp trophy and prize package!

Come sip on cocktails, play unique games, eat nostalgic bites, bid on auction items, and we’ll all raise our glasses for a good cause!

This year, we’re also celebrating a major milestone as Camp Hope turns 40! Started in 1983 by Donna Brown, after losing two children, Kyle and Melani, to cancer, her hope was to connect children and families on the cancer journey. Today, we still carry on “Ma” Donna’s legacy through KyMel’s Camp Hope and Camp SIBsational.

Every dollar donated goes directly to helping families—regardless of financial ability— temporarily forget about cancer. Will you participate in Camp for a Cause 2022 as a sponsor, donor and/or attendee and preserve this legacy for local kids facing cancer?

Through Camp Hope and Camp SIBsational, KyMel’s mission is to support families on the cancer journey by providing connecting experiences. Every dollar donated goes directly to helping families–regardless of financial ability– temporarily forget about cancer.

Celebrity Emcee

Kim Byrnes is a former anchor and reporter at FOX 4 Kansas City and current Director of Agency Services at Heartland National Life Insurance Company.
Prior to her move to Kansas City in 1997, Kim worked as an anchor, reporter and photographer in Springfield, Missouri and Pittsburg, Kansas.Kim has been telling stories since she was a child. With a captive audience in her sixth grade class, she turned a three-minute speech into 27 minutes. Her teacher told her it was a school record and she hasn’t stopped talking since.

In her spare time, which is rare, Kim loves to hang out with her three kids, shop, travel and fish. One of her proudest moments is reeling in a 25-pound king salmon in Alaska, which she showed off to fellow travelers at Kansas City International Airport upon landing. The baggage claim area has never quite smelled the same.
Kim is a KU graduate and a proud Jayhawk!
