Mission Statement

Our mission is to enrich the lives of children with life threatening illnesses who come to us from The Children's Medical Center of Dayton. We host year round, fun-filled group activities and destination events, fostering joy, laughter, normalcy and supportive networking opportunities. All of our adventures are geared toward the whole family, including the siblings, so no one is excluded. We are a unique organization fostering hope to these children and their families. We give them something to look forward to often. They need hope to give their doctors and medical technology the time to catch up to the illness.

Description

We host (12) events called Adventures each year to exciting destinations like Kings island, The US Air Force, WSU Basketball, Dayton Bombers Hockey and Kil Kare Races to name a few. Our largest Adventure by far is the Holiday Gift Adventure in which we shop for 750 children. Because of the expenses related to the illnessess and the fact that only one parent can work outside of the home these gifts become for the most part the childrens only Holiday gifts.
