GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Zachary Quinn and Brian Keller joined KARE Saturday to talk about the Love Your Melon Foundation.

Love Your Melon is a non-profit with a mission to instill hope and create smiles on the faces of children battling cancer. Zachary Quinn and Brian Keller founded the organization on Oct. 22nd, 2012 while the two were students at the University of St. Thomas. As of Sept. 1st, 2013, Love Your Melon has donated more than 2,500 hats to children and families across the country.

In addition to hat donations, the organization has helped to host numerous fundraisers to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.

Quinn and Keller recently returned from an 18-city bus tour where the two traveled across the country visiting college campuses and children's hospitals to raise awareness and funds, and to hand out hats to children.
