Fore the Kids foundation is a proud supporter of Children's Mercy Hospitals in Kansas City, raising money to provide services and treatment advances to help bring smiles to children's faces at a time when they are hard to find...but so incredibly important.
Help us meet our goals for 2015:
• Establish “Leo’s Place” a playroom for children battling cancer
• Purchase a child friendly ambulance to support the 5,000 much needed transports for follow-up treatment each year from all counties in Kansas and most of Missouri
Nick and Jake’s Fore the Kids golf tournament has been a proud supporter of Children’s Mercy Hospitals, raising over $500,000 and providing all the “extra’s” of care. Proceeds from the tournament have brought iPads to the patients bedsides, created an Urgent Care and Sports Medicine gym nestled in southern Johnson County and started a Pet Therapy program for children with cancer and epilepsy. This tournament makes miracles happen for our children.
This year, we will recognize the creation of “Leo’s Place” a playroom for children battling cancer. Proceeds from the tournament will provide toys and games for the children along with our ultimate goal of purchasing an ambulance. The hospital does almost 5,000 transports each year to all counties in Kansas and most of Missouri. The ambulances are well equipped with all of the necessary medical equipment and appearance of our child friendly hospital. Our goal is to replace a current model that has over 300,000 miles.
