Welcome to RWK
There are thousands of children in the Quad City Area (QCA) who are living the reality of no longer having a beloved family member they were born into the world with. These children have to cope with reality at a very young age. As adults who grieve, we have a better knowledge of how to handle emotions, and it is still tough. Children have even less knowledge about dealing with these emotions as well and are overlooked during devastating times. The Ride with Kelly Foundation (RWK) stands to help these at-risk QCA children succeed.
The RWK Foundation mission is to assist children financially/emotionally who are grieving the loss of a parent(s) or sibling(s) by providing support for college, providing funds for funeral expenses, paying for family expenses to provide shelter for surviving children while the family faces hardships, by funding Rick’s House of Hope grievance camp for children, providing the center with art supplies and tools to assist with the development of dealing with emotions, and directing families to seek counseling through local organizations.
We Proudly Support
As well as individual families by providing:
- Support for college
- Funds for funeral expenses
- Family expenses for surviving children
RWK would like to extend a big Thank You to all of our supporters and contributors! Every single dollar helps the cause! Thank You!
