Our history is short and sweet! We've been incorporated since 2009, and our membership has always been free, including refreshments for our programs. We've incorporated all facility, material, and hospitality contributions into our therapeutic recreation support programs, as well as our special events and fundraisers. Through trial and error, we have concluded that our experienced and dedicated volunteers, rather than paid employees, bring a special compassionate effort into our services that could not be matched! Our passive fundraising history has led to a greater need for more cost effective programing so that we may continue our FREE membership and services! But we wouldn't have it any other way! It is not our policy to aggressively solicit funds! We are sure that our mission will pay for itself by remaining efficient, effective, and purposeful! When there's a will, there's a way.... and our journey is our goal!
We even have our bi-annual newsletters available to view from past years for historical purposes! Also view our website from years past right here.... Enjoy!

Our objectives are to provide the opportunities for members to socialize, support one another, and discuss or plan motivational activities for the children and other members. Also, to implement activities and organize events that the children wish to pursue. We also provide resource information through our professional membership and associates. We advocate for the children and their families and we support them as much as our resources will provide. We encourage positive outlooks and help promote the health and well-being of all our members!!!
Quality time is what we're all about!
Fun For Cure, Inc. is a tax exempt non-profit public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.

Joy, laughter, fun and group support are some of the stepping stones on the journey toward self confidence, empowerment, hope and positive thinking!!!
