Kans for Kids
Kans for Kids is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting children who are living with cancer. It was started in 1994 by 11-year-old Sarah and 8-year-old Shane Reif of Hoisington to help with the medical expenses of their 10-month-old cousin, Katie.
In 1996 the effort became the Kans for Kids Fighting Cancer Foundation. Since its inception, this project has raised over $500,000 by recycling aluminum cans, as well as from memorials, fundraisers, and cash donations, while assisting many children living with cancer.
