The Kids-N-Hope Foundation raises $29,000 during Rhapsody and Rhythm Walk-A-Thon

Event Raises Funds to Support Pediatric Music Therapy Programs at Local Hospitals

PHILADELPHIA, PA (April 21, 2022) — The Kids-N-Hope Foundation (“The Foundation”) recently raised $29,000 to kick off the fundraising year during its virtual Rhapsody and Rhythm Walk-A-Thon and 5K this Spring. The 7-day virtual event invited participants walk their 5K goal at their own pace while virtually fundraising throughout the event to continue supporting The Foundation’s beneficiaries.

Participants were able to join a team or participate as an individual to fundraise and meet their personal goal and help The Foundation reach its goal for this event. All proceeds are benefitting the Kids-N-Hope Foundation and the programs it supports, specifically enhancing children’s health and life services through pediatric music therapy at local hospitals and not-for-profit organizations.

“We are thrilled to have kicked off our fundraising year with our Walk-A-Thon having raised $29,000 as a result of our supporters, sponsors, and donors,” stated Bruce K. Foulke, Founder and Chairman of the Kids-N-Hope Foundation. “Although it seems like just yesterday that we started the Kids-N-Hope Foundation with a dream of helping local children through music therapy programs, we are proud of the continual contributions and the work being done to spread our Foundation’s impact on pediatric health. Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to this event.”
