CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Publicity has helped the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago raise enough money to double the number of kids they can send to a free week of camp.

The foundation says that after a FOX 32 News story aired in July, enough additional donations were raised to allow them to offer a second week of camp for kids.

Camp Blackhawk provides the opportunity for about 60 kids to get away for a week, free of charge, and enjoy fun activities including swimming, rock climbing and arts and crafts.

Next year, 120 kids will have that opportunity.
