Saving lives for over 25 years!
Losing a child is hard. Losing a child to a preventable tragedy may be even harder. Having the community support you in your sorrow is a blessing. In 1995, the community shared in our grief and raised $5,000. Those funds were used to educate others. The mission was born: Promote proper hydration and prevent heat illness through education and supporting activities.
In the spring of 1996, the first mission activity of Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life was to distribute 5,000 squeeze bottles printed with hydration reminders, along with a pamphlet including heat illness prevention guidelines. Since then, through the support of our donors, we have used the education printed on each bottle, and our education presentations, to reach over 300,000 youth in Northwest Arkansas and across the state with this life saving mission.
Thank you so much for your commitment to our mission and for helping us continue to save lives! YOU are making our life saving mission possible!
