Juvenile diabetes affects children of all ages. It’s a life threatening and life altering disease for many children. Cameron is one of those children. There is so much mis-information about the disease along with high medical costs that many families struggle to keep up with. Cameron’s family was and is in the same situation.

The Kif Brown Foundation began in 2015 following the loss of our namesake, Kif. Kif was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in 2013 and only given a prognosis of a few months. He LIVED until February of 2015 due, in part, to his research and commitment to diet and nutrition as part of his treatment.
We may look like just a sports program, but that is not actually what we want to be known for. Offering just sports is not enough, it is what we are doing with sports that we really want to be known for. With sports, we are creating inclusion and acceptance for kids from the grades of K-12th with all abilities. We teach all kids mentorship, leadership skills, patience and understanding of others and also show kids that even though we are all different, we are also all the same. Some of our best volunteers happen to be kids in kindergarten through 12th grade. All they are doing is playing sports with children that don’t always have the same opportunity as they do. We are focused on trying to give every child their moment: whether it’s announcing their name in a starting lineup and running onto a field with people cheering them on or having BSU players go to their house after tryouts and handing out jerseys saying they “made the team”. We are giving the gift of acceptance. There are many little things that we focus on which make our organization stand out. You just have to care a little more than the average person.
Veteran Entrepreneur Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our goal is to provide Veterans an avenue to increase their education in business and also to learn to expand their businesses and connect with fellow Veterans. We would like to serve as a resource for those who are seeking to re-integrate themselves into the community through a business platform. By doing this, Veterans not only re-establish a sense of purpose, but are able to continue serving by supporting their community.
