A Leg Up for Kids Foundation is made up of our two co-founders, our Board of Directors, fabulous volunteers, our Circle of Friends, and our supporters!
Cynthia Smilyk, Co-Founder
"All children deserve to enjoy a day at the park, to watch a brother or sister play soccer, and to just feel the warm sun on their cheeks. For many children, the only thing standing between them and the great outdoors is finding a safe, convenient, affordable vehicle to carry their medical equipment. As a volunteer at AI DuPont Children's Hospital, I saw the joy on children's faces as they wheeled out of the hospital in Mark's custom built strollers and I wanted to provide as many children that opportunity as possible. It will be wonderful when every child who needs a stroller from A Leg Up for Kids can enjoy that same thrill!"
