BLACKSBERG, S.C. -- Kids with heart problems are getting a chance to cut loose this weekend as two dozens families are participating in the second annual Camp Luck at Kings Mountain State Park.
Organizers of a camp for kids have a heart for helping those with heart problems. Camp Luck is in its second year of helping children with cardiovascular problems. Organizers say they want to expand.
Camp Director Jay Thompson said the medically supervised camp is intended to help children with cardiovascular problems feel normal.
"From Friday to Sunday it is amazing, we call it unzipping yourself and letting go and being yourself," said Thompson.
Organizers say they hope to expand Camp Luck next year to a week long event. If you would to learn or donate to the cause go to the organization's website.
