We are organizing our Third Annual Courageous Kids 6K Run and Fun Walk! All proceeds from the race benefit the medically fragile children who attend The Center for Courageous Kids each year. Every penny helps us have the ability to put another smile on a child’s face.
The Courageous Kids 6K will be held on Saturday, May 13st at 8:00 a.m. at Covington Woods Park in Bowling Green, KY and last year they raised $30,000 and welcomed over 200 runners/walkers.
The Center for Courageous Kids is a not for profit Medical Camping Facility founded by the late Ms. Betty Turner Campbell in October of 2004 and opened for the first family weekend in February of 2008. Ms. Betty lost a beloved son following a 17 year battle with cancer. It was then she was inspired to create a place where children living with life threatening illnesses and their families could come free of charge and have fun, find respite, feel normal and forget about their every day struggles. Since inception, over 25,000 medically fragile campers and their families have visited The Center for Courageous Kids from 45 different states and ten foreign countries. Her dream of building a medical camp on her Father’s 168 acre farm, in her hometown of Scottsville, KY, came true and continues to change the lives of thousands of children every year.
An update on what’s been going on at camp, they have served over 25,000 campers and families from 45 states and 10 foreign countries to date and Graves Gilbert Clinic is a proud supporter of this great cause and event!
