Hike 2 Mend
October 13 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
On October 13th, Mending Kids will be hosting their inaugural Hike 2 Mend. An up-to five-mile hike symbolizing the distance that a parent in a developing country has to travel on foot to try to gain access to surgical care for their child.
Many of their medical volunteers and supporters will come together at the Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park in Tarzana on Sunday morning to draw attention to the hundreds of millions of children who require access to care.
We hike this October so that Mending Kids may continue to offer critical surgical care to children in need all over the world, including right here in the USA. Every step you take with Mending Kids, you take with these parents. By hiking and raising awareness through your journey, you illuminate the struggle that many underserved families face and help them return home with mended children and healthy futures.
