We are lucky to have the University of Missouri as a partner of our organization. Every week, a Mizzou athlete visits a child at the MU Women's and Children's Hospital. The player delivers a gift basket, provided by our sponsors. Gift baskets are filled with various game, gifts, and gear. The athletes also provide the children with a Playing 4 Hope wristband do their best to lift their spirits and provide the child with a special memory. Prior to the visit, the athlete sends a personalized video of strength and encouragement to the child.
We hold various fundraisers throughout the year. Every dollar raised goes back to the children we serve. When applicable, fundraiser information will be posted on all social media accounts.
Before every football home game, we set up a tailgate in the waiting room of the hospital. The tailgate consists of food, beverages, and games and is available for anyone on the pediatric floor. This includes patients, their families, and staff.
