With a $2,000 CMF grant, the Foundation can share Chris’ passion for nature and genuine love of the outdoors by providing needs-based scholarships for about 20 children. These kids will get the chance to step away from city living and unplug from technology and daily routines while gaining an appreciation for our environment.

Since 2010, the Foundation has given $18,000 to the Greater Wichita YMCA’s Camp Hyde to help young people experience the outdoors.
