our vision

~ Building Character, Connecting Kids, Creating Hope ~

Kids Playing For Kids aspire to be the primary organization of sports playing children around the world who are dedicated to not only building their skills on the field but building their CHARACTER by providing FRIENDSHIP, JOY, and HOPE for children with chronic and life-threatening medical conditions.

When Max joined the Fighting Falcons soccer team, he found friends and team mates who cared about him on and off the field.

KPFK is a great organization. They have not only helped my son feel like an athlete, but also helped me conquer a fear of allowing my son to play sports, while dealing with his chronic Sickle Cell disease.
