Rainbows For Kids is a 501 (c) (3) Charity in St. Louis, Mo. dedicated to helping children with cancer and other serious illnesses and supporting their families. 






How Long In Business-- 17 Years!
The organization was started in 2000 after the family of a child with cancer in St. Louis saw first-hand how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be. We put on fun events for the families of children with cancer at Cardinal Glennon Hospital, Children's Hospital, and Mercy Pediatrics.




Baseball Team Each year Rainbows for Kids has a "Baseball Team" complete with uniforms, three practices, an "All-Star Game," trophy presentation, and team party. Last year, Cardinals short stop Aledmys Diaz surprised the kids and showed up for their All-Star Game. Diaz had just played in the MLB All-Star Game earlier in the week so it was very special for the kids. He was so happy to be there he took a selfie!
 

We Do Lots of Fun Things With the Families.

Some things we have done this year: Hosted the families at a Cardinals game and several Muny productions; we had a fishing trip, a Mom's Spa Day and Kids Party, bowling party, All-Star Hockey Party at Lindenwood University, plus other events-- some shown below.


We put together fun "Eclipse Boxes" for those who were in the hospital or at the Ronald McDonald House during the eclipse.



This year the Rainbows for Kids All-Star Game was held inside due to threat of rain. Fredbird was a hit as always. A few of the kids posed for the picture.




We are always having fun doing things to keep their minds off of cancer. This pic was taken at Monkey Joes where we had our "Team Party."{



We had our annual Holiday Party, complete with musical entertainment by Michael "Supe" Granda (Ozark Mountain Dardevils) doing "Silly Grandpa Songs."
