UNL students (from left) Sarah Meyer, aka "Mabel"; Madelyn Cejka, aka "Cowbelle"; Noah Brittenham, aka "Cubed"; and Hannah DePriest, aka "Alaska," are active members of the Camp Kesem-UNL Chapter, which helps children facing a parent's cancer. Brittenham and Cejka are event coordinators for the Make the Magic spring fundraiser, and DePriest and Meyer are the UNL Chapter co-directors for Camp Kesem.

Camp Kesem-UNL recently raised over $42,000 at the sixth annual Make the Magic benefit dinner for Camp Kesem. The event included dinner, a program and moving speaker testimonials at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel and is Camp Kesem's largest fundraiser each year. Many large donations were received, including $1,000 from Lincoln Sunrise Kiwanis.

This summer, Camp Kesem at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has the goal of sending 140 kids to camp. Camp Kesem is a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to helping children through and beyond a parent's cancer. Camp is offered free to the children. The camp is planned and executed entirely by college students. This year, UNL has 74 counselors and a 17-member executive board.
