About Camp LUCK
Bike LUCK raises money for Camp LUCK, which is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that operates a weeklong medically supervised sleep-away camp for children with congenital heart disease (“heart kids”) and their siblings (the “kids camp”). Unlike the vast majority of camps, Camp LUCK is free of charge! All donations are tax-deductible.
The “LUCK” in Camp LUCK’s name stands for Lucky Unlimited Cardiac Kids because, at kids camp, we want our “heart kids” to be “normal kids” for a week and to participate in awesome activities that they might not normally be able to – like canoeing, lake swimming, archery, zip-lining, and challenging themselves on adventure courses.
In addition to operating the kids camp, Camp LUCK also operates a three-day “family camp” for heart kids and their families and offers a year-round support group for families with heart kids that are too young to attend kids camp.
Like kids camp, all of Camp LUCK’s programs are free of charge. Being able to offer camp and our other programs free of charge is essential to our mission because even with health insurance, treatment for congenital heart disease is really expensive and many families with heart kids would not be able to send their kids to camp or participate in our programs if they had to pay. So by participating in Bike LUCK, including the fundraising challenge, you are directly helping these heart kids and their families.
