Why We Walk – so that NO CHILD is turned away

Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies was founded by a group of parents in 1958 who made a vow to NEVER turn away a child who needed services even if their family could not afford the total cost of our care. Because of its mission, Kids Center never recoups the total cost of services. After insurance is billed and the families pay what they can, the Center is left with an average deficit of $60 per hour. The Walk and Roll for KIDS raises badly needed funds to help close the gap, enabling us to serve all children that need therapy. That is why we need YOU, our Kids Center family, which includes parents, kids, fan clubs, staff and the community to help support therapy services!

 

Where the Money Goes:

  • Every $1 we raise goes to offset the deficit for families who are unable to pay.
  • A goal of $250 will cover the cost of assessing a child's need for treatment.
  • A $600 goal will provide a month of therapy for a child (one visit per week).

Consider these numbers as you set goals for fundraising!
