How Your Support Makes a Difference

Every dollar you raise helps UHCCF provide medical grants to great kids like Aidan.

Minnesota native, Aidan, has received multiple medical grants. One of those grants, provided him with a racing wheelchair so he could do something he loves - race! The grant and wheelchair greatly improved his quality of life and has allowed him to participate in marathons. Aidan has won a State Championship medal, numerous Junior National medals, and was part of the 2019 UHCCF Grandma’s Marathon Team!
