San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) November 29, 2013
The Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center is happy to announce that the Hootenanny Event raised the most money it ever has for the Kinetic Kids Organization. The Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center is a lead sponsor of the Kinetic Kids. They helped to put on the Hootenanny Event in order to raise money for the Kinetic Kids programs. COSC was more than happy to support the Kinetic Kids Hootenanny event. It was an amazing event and had an even more amazing outcome. The Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center and the Cyr's (founders of COSC) were more than happy to help out such an amazing cause and organization that helps children with physical disabilities. The event turned out to be a huge success!
Kinetic Kids are children from all walks of life who experience the daily struggles of lifelong challenges including but not limited to: cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Down’s Syndrome, autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, brain tumors, cancers, or other neurological disorders. These children have the desire to perform age-appropriate sports and recreational activities like their peers. They are children who may use wheelchairs as their primary mobility or they may use a walker or crutches. They may also be independent with mobility but for other reasons, are limited in their participation in recreational activities with their peer group. The Kinetic Kids organization was established to provide health, recreational, and educational services to these children and their families. Their mission is to provide unique experiences through physical and creative activities in a supportive environment to children with special needs who may otherwise be excluded.
The Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center became a sponsor of this amazing organization because their main goals are similar to that of the Kinetic Kids. COSC wants to help all children with disabilities to be able to be physically active. The Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center and Kinetic Kids have joined together in order to help physically limited children conquer movement. COSC knows the importance of rehabilitation after and before surgery for disabled children and Kinetic Kids is the perfect organization which helps children with the same spinal conditions that COSC works with. Therefore, the Children’s Orthopaedic and Spine Center made it a goal to raise as much money as they could to continue to support the Kinetic Kids organization in order to continue to help as many children as possible.
Catherine Dial Easley, Development Director of Kinetic Kids, Inc. sends her gracious thanks to COSC and the Cyr's, saying: "Thank you for your generous support of our Hootenanny evening, both financially and from the heart! From the moment you said yes as our Presenting Sponsor, you jumped in with both feet and helped us make this event the highest grossing evening in the history of Hootenanny. To say that we couldn't have done it without you is an understatement.
The Acapulco house, which brought in $8,500, was because of your friendship with Lorena. I know that many other silent and live auction items were brought in by Cedar and LeAnn. Dr. Cyr, your speech was spot on and you were so gracious to mention the other orthopedics in the audience. We are very grateful for your support. Thank you again for all you have done for our Kinetic Kids!"
