The Kyrie Foundation was chosen as the Wichita BabyFare’s charity sponsor!


Over 1,000 visitors came by the event, where The Kyrie Foundation and Kyrie’s pediatric oncologist, Dr. David Rosen, delivered the keynote address on Saturday morning.


We debuted a new bracelet: the baby-size bracelet, as well as our newly published Kyrie Foundation cookbook. We also made friends with BabyWaves, a fantastic 3-D sonogram service, and connected with several new volunteers for our cause. A tremendous success on all fronts.

Scrap Like You Mean It 2008

The first step toward curing pediatric brain cancer begins with you!

The Kyrie Foundation’s first-annual Twilight Walk, a two-mile evening stroll and benefit concert to raise research funds to fight children’s brain cancers, was a huge success! Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded it thanks to you, our incredible attendees who believe in the cause. We kicked off evening kicks off with music, food, a fantastic silent auction and children’s games, including a moonwalk, faux tattoos and a guest appearance from Oz’s Dorothy and her friends! 

As a gorgeous pink sunset stretched across the Kansas sky, we launched our balloons for Kyrie and walked nine quarter-mile laps, one lap for each child diagnosed every day with a brain tumor.past_events_files/Moonwalks.
