There is nothing more heart-warming than seeing a little sick child’s face light up when he or she receives a little toy car or coloring book. There is nothing more humbling than to see joy in the faces of these brave and courageous kids who persevere in the presence of suffering. We hope to touch as many lives of sick children and their families in the hospital by helping them get through the tough times.
Cyrus and Chad Morrison - Founders of Kick for Kids
Kick for Kids is an organization all about children. It was inspired by a child and founded by a child to directly help sick children in local hospitals. Each year youth and collegiate swim teams organize Kick-a-thons to raise money to benefit local children’s hospitals. Since 2011, Kick for Kids has raised over $70,000. In addition to our annual fall event in Palo Alto, CA, Kick for Kids sponsored a new event with Cornell University in Ithaca, NY in the spring of 2019. We are happy to partnering with Cornell and the Palo Alto Swim Club to benefit top children’s hospital services on both the east and west coast of the United States.
Our family just recently benefitted from the amazing Child Life team/toys at LPCH and are so happy to be able to make a give back. Grace kicked for her little brother while he was staying there. Thank you for organizing this Chad and Cyrus!
