Local Programs

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.

Everyone deserves an opportunity to live life to its fullest. K2 Strength to Thrive supports individuals through nutritional guidance, mental wellness support and access to equipment and physical therapy in order to facilitate healing while maintaining independence for as long as possible.

As part of K2 Strength to Thrive, K2 Adventures Foundation created the Cade’s Escapades program, in memory of a young man named Cade Keller, who passed away in 2022 at the all too early age of 16.

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 have 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!”
