Carnival Cruise Lines teamed up with the American Cancer Society to host a Hawaiian-themed party at the cruise line’s Miami headquarters for 55 kids with cancer who were attending the R.O.C.K. (Reaching Out to Cancer Kids) Camp in Northern Florida.
Several Carnival employees, including President and CEO Gerry Cahill, as well as the line’s mascot, Fun Ship Freddy, were on hand to provide the kids, ages seven to 16, with a fun-filled send-off before heading out to the week-long excursion at Camp Boggy Creek in Eustis, Fla.
Founded in 1976, R.O.C.K. Camp is the first week-long summer camp in the U.S. created for children with cancer.
