Welcome to the 4RKids Foundation, Inc.
The 4RKids Foundation, Inc. was started in Enid, OK, in 2003. A small group of parents and educators of special needs children and adults recognized the need for more services and opportunities for developmentally disabled individuals in Garfield and the surrounding counties of northwest Oklahoma. The mission of 4RKids is to promote community awareness of special needs individuals, and to provide vocational, educational, and social/recreational opportunities for special needs children and adults.
Our Mission at 4RKids:
• To promote community awareness of developmentally disabled individuals.
• To provide vocational, educational, and social/recreational opportunities for special needs children and adults in northwest Oklahoma.
4RKids pursues these goals in a number of ways, most visibly in three businesses: Putt-Putt 4RKids, The 2nd Story – A Unique Book and Gift Store, and the 2nd Story Employment Center, all conveniently located at 710 Overland Trail in Enid, OK.
Come join us at the Annual 4RKids Walk/Run!!
This year’s annual walk will be on September 21, 2013 at the David Allen Memorial Ballpark.
Each year the 4RKids Foundation hosts the Walk 4RKids inside the stadium of the David Allen Memorial Ballpark in downtown Enid. Now in it’s 10th year, this all-inclusive community event is our largest annual fundraiser. Throughout the morning 4RKids hosts a family-friendly carnival complete with clowns, horse-drawn buggy rides, face-painting, carnival games, inflatable attractions, food and drinks — and everything is provided free of charge to all who participate by our generous and dedicated corporate sponsors.
The highlight of the morning is the actual Walk 4RKids. For months before the Walk individuals forms teams often in support of a developmentally disabled friend or family member. Teams raise money to donate to the 4RKids Foundation. Prizes are donated for the teams raising the most money in several categories. On the day of the Walk 4RKids, the teams gather together and walk around the ball field perimeter. Teams make banners, decorate bikes and wagons, and even sport special team t-shirts to honor their teammates in a wonderful celebration of the abilities all people possess.
This year’s Walk 4RKids will be held on Saturday, September 21st, 2013. Teams — both individual and corporate — are already forming! Contact us today to find out how you can become involved.
