Kids of Courage Inc.
My Appeal
Kids of Courage serves hundreds of families from all over the country, Canada, and Israel. The programming goes on all year round; complete with trips, weekends, and fun events. All services provided are free to the children and families. We firmly believe that these families have enough burdens in their lives without worrying about the finances needed to participate in our activities.

K.O.C.’s flagship event is a week-long journey across the United States each summer, giving the Couragers from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, and Israel an opportunity to experience travel and adventure like an able-bodied child while under strict medical supervision. This trip is often the highlight of a child’s year. Additionally, each winter, with the help of Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow, over 50 courageous children embark on a four-day adaptive skiing adventure on Mount Snow in Vermont. These events as well as other programming is funded fully by the charitable donations that we receive from generous donors. Every step you take, every mile you cover, every dollar you raise is an opportunity to create smiles and lifelong memories for a Courager.

My Cause
The Mission: Kids of Courage is an innovative volunteer-based organization, dedicated to the improving the lives of children and young adults with serious medical diagnoses. Kids of Courage is committed to change the way people look at illness, and open up a world of support, hope and opportunity for every sick child and family, no matter how serious the diagnosis.
About the Organization: Imagine for a moment that you are 14 years old and in a wheelchair, or have a feeding tube, or require oxygen, or possibly all three. How difficult would it be to travel to a place like Disney World, ski down the slopes of a snowy mountain or ride a rollercoaster or jet-ski? Kids of Courage (K.O.C.) is an extraordinary, unique, non-profit organization that makes dreams come true for children and young adults who are living with serious, debilitating, painful, often life-threatening illnesses, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Volunteer driven, K.O.C.‘s mission and goal, from its inception in 2008, has been to empower children and young adults — most of whom would otherwise be restricted to hospitals or their homes — to have the glorious, joyful, exhilarating, companion-filled adventures children deserve and to enable them to see and experience a world of delights that would otherwise be unattainable.
