BENEFITING: Amputee Coalition
EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2014
Kicking for Kids Who Can't (KFKWC) was founded by Ginna Goodenow in 2006 to assist children with limb loss. Held by the Amputee Coalition, the proceeds raised from the fundraising event go to support the Coalition's Youth Camp program. KFKWC will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2014 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
The Amputee Coalition's Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp is a 5-day traditional summer camp experience for children ages 10-17 who have lost arms and/or legs or who were born with limb differences. The Coalition covers all expenses, including travel, for the campers. The average cost to send a child to camp is $1,800. Since its beginning in 2000, the camp has hosted more than 790 campers with limb loss or limb difference.
