The Kids for Kids Foundation was established in 2008 by a group of New York City professionals to help children and families battling catastrophic diseases. They are a community of friends, families, and colleagues raising money for organizations that support children and families struggling with medical challenges. Their family-focused events serve to inspire the next generation of humanitarians – our children.
On Tuesday, April 24, 2018, the Kids for Kids Foundation’s Bertil Roos Formula 2000 Race took place to benefit St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children. Nineteen racers hit the track in the Poconos and raised $39,000 for St. Mary’s Kids!
The Kids for Kids Foundation also generously donated $500,000 towards our Capital Renovation Project, which will transform 22,300 square feet of administrative space into the Center for Pediatric Respiratory Care—enabling St. Mary’s to add 27 ventilator-equipped beds to our hospital so we can meet the critical needs of kids with respiratory conditions.
Through all their support and fundraising efforts, the Kids for Kids Foundation is playing a big role in helping St. Mary’s Kids and their families breathe easier.
