Why We Walk and Roll – so that NO CHILD is turned away
It’s time for our biggest fundraising party of the year! Whether it's the walking, the donuts, or the music, we have fun for everyone! But do you know why we are walking and rolling?
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 raises badly needed funds to help close the gap, enabling us to serve all children that need therapy. That is why we need Kids Center parents, kids, fan clubs, staff and the community to help support therapy services!
Consider these numbers as you set fundraising goals:
- Every $1 we raise goes to offset the deficit for families who are unable to pay.
- Meeting a $250 goal will cover the cost of assessing a child's need for treatment.
- Meeting a $600 goal will provide a month of therapy for a child who visits once per week.
