Girl Mental Health

Dollars raised by Fore the Kids

Working to Combat the growing pediatric Mental Health crisis.

Fore the Kids Foundation has raised over $7 million since it’s partnership began with Children’s Mercy in 2009. In 2017, the establishment of the Nick’s Voice fund shifted the focus to address the growing mental health crisis in our community. Since then the foundation has been dedicated to educating our community about the signs, treatment, and therapy related to depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders affecting the mental health of our children. 

Now, funds raised by Fore the Kids Foundation benefit the Depression and Anxiety in Youth (DAY) clinic at Children’s Mercy hospital in Kansas City. The DAY clinic treated children suffering from mental health related illnesses, like depression and anxiety, when they are otherwise healthy.
