Kumho Tyre has announced it has signed on with children’s cancer charity Camp Quality as a corporate partner.
Camp Quality gives kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again, with services and programs created specifically to help children from birth to 15 years, who are dealing with their own cancer diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad.
As part of the partnership, Kumho Tyre will raise funds via hundreds of tyre dealers and tyre fitters across the Kumho network all around Australia, through special Camp Quality merchandise raising funds and awareness for the charity.
According to Kumho Tyre Australia’s managing director, John Jeon, the association with Camp Quality is a significant one for Kumho and will be the company’s major philanthropic focus in the future.
“Kumho is incredibly proud to be a corporate partner of Camp Quality because of the key role it plays in supporting children and families experiencing the challenges of cancer as well as providing valuable cancer education in schools across the community,” said John Jeon.
“As a global company Kumho is committed to community involvement, and supporting Camp Quality is just one demonstration of Kumho giving back to the community,” he said.
Kumho Tyre Australia, national marketing manager, Kenny Chun said Kumho has a proud history of supporting worthy community charities over many years.
“We are really pleased to have signed on to partner with Camp Quality,” Kenny Chun added.
More than 7500 kids facing cancer are registered for services and programs with Camp Quality. It’s estimated that 750 kids aged 0-15 are newly diagnosed with cancer each year, with the charity supporting around 59 per cent of these children with their services and programs.
Camp Quality CEO, Deborah Thomas, said the partnership will enable Camp Quality to continue to provide much-needed services and programs to kids impacted by cancer.
“We are delighted to be chosen by Kumho Tyres as their charity partner and look forward to working with the Kumho team so that together we can create positive memories which help change the cancer story for kids and their families: in-hospital, at home, at school and away from it all on camps and retreats”.
