"We strive to bring hope and support to those facing a sudden or prolonged injury, illness or diagnosis"
As the end of the year approaches and we are in the midst of the holiday season, The Travis Burkhart Foundation would like to thank all of you who have helped support our foundation and community in one way or another. You are the reason why The Travis Burkhart Foundation has been able to gift $80,000+ to 320+ families. To date we have also gifted 15 iPads to individuals with special needs. As we move into the new year we are preparing to meet the increasing need that we saw in 2015. The foundation is receiving on average 6-8 requests per month and is quickly outpacing our incoming funds. For the first time we are asking for donations outside of an event to ensure we meet the needs of our community. Since 2010 100% of all donations and sponsorship's from events has gone directly back into the community. Every donation no matter the size makes a difference. We again greatly appreciate your support in helping us make a positive impact in our community.
Our goal is to have 150 people give $5 per month for 2016, if we reach our goal with this donation drive it will guarantee that 24 families will receive help. If you would like to help us meet this goal visit http://www.travisburkhartfoundation.com/donate/ and set up a recurring donation for any amount you choose, its simple and easy to do! Thank you so much for your support and we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Blessed New Year!
“Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”. Hebrews 11:1
THE TRAVIS BURKHART FOUNDATION WAS STARTED TO HELP THOSE IN NEED THE SAME WAY WE WERE HELPED WHEN WE WERE IN NEED. WE HAVE FELT AND SEEN INCREDIBLE SUPPORT IN THE DAYS SINCE TRAVIS' ACCIDENT AND THIS IS OUR WAY OF GIVING BACK AND PAYING THAT KINDNESS FORWARD. WE WANT AS MANY FAMILIES AS POSSIBLE TO FEEL THE SUPPORT THAT WE DID.
WE LOOK TO TAKE OVER WHERE INSURANCE, MEDICARE, AND MEDICAID LEAVE OFF AND HELP THOSE THAT ARE GOING THROUGH STRUGGLES DUE TO A PROLONGED ILLNESS, AN ACCIDENT, OR MEDICAL CONDITION. WE PROVIDE SUPPORT IN THE FORM OF MONETARY AID, FOOD, GIFT CARDS, AND INFORMATION. WE KNOW ALL TOO WELL THAT BILLS AND EXPENSES CAN QUICKLY STACK UP AND THE MONETARY AID OR EVEN SOMETHING SIMPLE LIKE MEALS CAN HELP ALLEVIATE THE STRAIN. WE HAVE SEEN A LOT, BEEN THROUGH A LOT, AND WE WANT TO SHARE THE INFORMATION WE HAVE GAINED ALONG THE WAY.
If you wish to help us continue to positively impact our community you can donate here or if you require assistance you can apply for it here.
Steps for Hope is a 5k/10k Walk/Run. This event has been very successful with having 400+ runners at the 1st Annual and having the honor of running the 2nd Annual I-69 just before the Opening/Dedication Ceremonies. Last year we enhanced the day by adding some color! Register online HERE.
