Home is where the heart is, and for us that is Arizona.
We have been caring for children, adults and families with special needs and life-changing medical circumstances for over thirteen years, and we still wake up feeling like we’re just getting started.
The work we do locally is centered on granting both individual and partner charity award requests, community engagement, education and funding. K2 Adventures Foundation works specifically with disabled individuals on a case-by-case basis through an application process. To date, we have granted millions of dollars in awards.
We also collaborate with our local partners on a variety of heartfelt programs. K2 Adventures Foundation provides a multitude of services that include physical therapy, adaptive equipment, support and funds for education, as well as medical enrichment.
K2 at the Bat
When parents have a child with a disability or a terminal condition, playing baseball is something that’s often unavailable to their children. We set out to change this unfortunate reality.
K2 at the Batcave
Most kids wish for simple things and have the benefit of a long and healthy life to make their dreams come true. Time is of the essence for terminally ill children. K2 at the Batcave helps make their dreams a reality.
K2 Adventures Foundation encourages the sharing of creative experiences for children who are disabled and/or terminally ill. K2 Crafts is a wonderful bonding and learning opportunity for children.
K2 Fit & Well
This program provides young adults facing life challenges with the opportunity to focus on their personal health, wellness and fitness in order to gain strength in body, mind and spirit.
K2 Food for Families
K2 Food for Families was created to support the immediate needs of our most vulnerable populations. K2 Adventures Foundation assists community food banks and supports local partner charities in accomplishing this goal.
K2 Gymnastics provides children with disabilities and/or terminally ill, ages 3 to 10, the opportunity to join their peers in the gym for a few hours of challenging and inviting activities focusing on fun, safety and skill acquisitions.
Children love to use their creativity in the kitchen. K2 Kitchens makes cooking together for children who are disabled, and/or terminally ill, and their families both memorable and fun!
K2 Strength to Thrive
Everyone deserves an opportunity to live life to its fullest. K2 Strength to Thrive offers nutritional help, therapeutic assistance and equipment to chronically ill patients in order to facilitate healing while maintaining independence for as long as possible.
Laurie Malone Educational Scholarship Award
K2 Adventures Foundation’s goal is to provide an avenue for students to reach their full potential.
Those who face obstacles due to disabilities or limitations have an opportunity to receive our assistance for educational enrichment. The Educational Scholarship Fund was created in memory of Laurie Malone, founding Board Member of K2 Adventures Foundation.

National Programs Directors
K2’s programs for youth embraces our philosophy “There are no disabilities, only possibilities”. All of our programs are ongoing and offered through partnerships with local organizations and are provided free of charge to children and their families. Since 2016, K2 local programs has served countless children/youth and their families. As one parent wrote, “We can’t think of anything more fun than spending the weekend with K2! Thank you for giving our kids such amazing opportunities and the courage to try something new!”
