Drive For Kids

Unfortunately, this year we will not be doing the Drive For Kids event. Over the years, this event has raised money and awareness for our program to flourish and empower our kids we serve. We want to thank Walser Automotive Group, Dave Lee and the rest of the WCCO Radio team, and the many drivers who supported us while cruising in style down to Red Wing.


2017 Hurdles Foundation Fundraiser a BIG success!

The steeplechase exhibition was a huge success! We are thankful for our friends at the Hurdles Foundation, Canterbury Park, and track announcer Paul Allen for hosting such a wonderful event. Click the headline to see pics from the day’s fun.


Just For Kids Golf Tournament –  August 14, 2017

Rush Creek Golf Club

Thanks to the generosity of our 2016 event sponsors and participants, we were able to meet our fundraising goal of $30,000. With your continued support, we hope to do better in 2017. If you are interested in getting involved with an organization that values the well-being of Minnesota’s children and families, look no further — we’d love to have your support. Please consider making a tax-deductable donation. Your generosity can greatly impact a child’s life!
