KEEN - Kids Enjoy Exercise Now

I have a very good friend who is the Executive Director for KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now).

"KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities at no cost to their families and caregivers. KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals."

This girl is awesome.  She's even a great singer...she sang at our wedding (which everyone thought was a CD, not a live singer) and even belted out a few National Anthems here and there.



After reading her story (which I'm not sure how I missed this until now) I feel like I too should get up and go do something.  I LOVE to help others, and love to see kids get excited at their own personal accomplishments.

I can't physically help KEEN at this time, but I can help by voting in the Eagle Rare Life Honor Award and Contest.  Seven out of the top 20 stories will win a prize for their charity:

The Grand Prize

  • $30,000 donated by Eagle Rare in his/her name to the charity of his/her choice.
  • Eagle Rare will also host a local award reception for the Grand Prize award winner.

Runners Up

  • Eagle Rare will also donate $3,000 to the other 6 finalists charities' of choice in their name.
If you know someone who leads a Rare life, click here to submit their story. For more information, please watch the video below or read our terms and conditions.
 
So please, read Maggie's story and vote HERE to help make the difference in a kids life!
