Kids in the Outdoors x COHV
COHV Kids had the opportunity to participate in Kids in the Outdoors as an outlet activity for grief recovery. The COHV kids rode a charter to Gallatin, MO and participated in activities such as archery tag, horseback riding, farming, fishing, a wild game cook out, tractor rides, sand volleyball, and more. This trip gave the kids not only an outlet, but a new environment to create experiences, develop skills for life, and memories of a lifetime. Kids in the Outdoors is a non-profit organization that helps underprivileged kids under the age of 16 find their way into the great outdoors.
Shine Bright, Do Good
Kendra Scott, a designer jewelry boutique located at the Country Club Plaza hosted a "Kendra Gives Back Event" with 20% of in store sales benefiting COHV on Saturday, July 15th.

The largest transaction to benefit COHV was over $1,000. Special thank you to Susan and her team at Kendra Scott (Plaza).
Peace Ride #9
Children of Homicide Victims joined the United in Peace Foundation KC, a movement uniting diverse peoples to Stop The Violence in their Ride For Peace #9. COHV Kids got the chance to bring awareness to the murder of their parents by riding through Midtown Kansas City holding up customized signs and banners. They also got to participate in face painting, bounce houses, and some even faced their fear of singing in front of a crowd a song dedicated to their lost loved one. This event empowered and created youth ready to advocate for change.
