Benefiting the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital

I am excited to report that with all your help, we have raised $9,165 for Packard Children’s hospital this year!  Thank you so much for your continued support of Kick for Kids.  Your donation is greatly appreciated and will help the Child Life Group at Packard Children’s Hospital connect with every child. They help these patients manage stress and fears, provide toys at bedside, supply arts and crafts, and give surprise celebrations for birthdays or last chemo treatments. We had fun kicking on October 11th for this worthy cause.  Thank you so much for those that participated and kicked. Together, we have made a difference for these brave children :) The Packard page is still open if anyone still would like to contribute.

2017 - Donated $7,108

Benefiting the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital

Once again we had a very successful Kick for Kids fundraiser on October 19!  Thank you to everyone who made this such an amazing event by kicking, supporting and generously donating.

This year we raised $7,108 for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Child Life Department.  To give you an idea, with this money, we have funded for a winter holiday party for the sick children and their families since these kids can not go home during the holidays.  In addition, our donation funds almost a year’s worth of Art therapy in the children’s cancer unit.  Lastly, we help with small birthday presents for the kids that have to spend their birthday in the hospital.  Wow, this is awesome!

Over the last 7 years, together, we have raised almost $57,000!  I am grateful for all of you and thank you for making a difference in the lives of kids in the hospital.  

“Thank you for making a difference in these children's lives. God bless you!!!”

2014 - Donated $8,069.50

Benefiting the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital

A HUGE thank you to all that supported my 4th annual Kid for Kids fundraiser by donating and kicking.  This year, on Friday, October 10th, my whole swim team, PASA-Rinconada participated and we kicked laps benefiting Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital specifically Child Life Specialists.  This kick-a-thon included swimmers ages ranging from 6 to 18!  All participants received cool sunglasses, colorful “kick for Kids” swim caps, and of course a few treats after.  We all had a blast kicking and raising money for this worthy cause.

Fundraised:  $8,069.50 !!!  We beat our last years results by $903.50. Also notable is that the last 4 years, kick for kids has raised over $21,000!!!

None of this would be possible without you.  Thank you for your support, donations and the kicking!  I am proud that we as a group helped this cause and hopefully brought a smile to a child’s face during their hospital stay.
