Courageous Kids has been hosting free events for children who face life threatening illnesses, and their families, since 2010. We provide these events as a distraction for the kids’ medical appointments, surgeries, hospitalizations and isolation from family and friends. When they come to these events, they, and their parents and siblings, can socialize with kids and families that are like them, creating life-long bonds and emotional support. We often hear from parents, siblings, and our courageous kids just how much they look forward to, appreciate, and enjoy participating in our events. With the support of our donors and community partners, we offer outings to professional sporting events, museums, science centers, movie mornings, painting parties, theater workshops, and more. Courageous Kids hopes to utilize the 2021 CFCU Summer of Sharing grant of $1,000 to help pay for future events such as at our upcoming visit to a Reptile House. Thank you!
