KRS2 is devoted to fighting for kids today, so that they can live tomorrow. Each year in the U.S. there are approximately 13,400 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. Childhood cancer is the most common cause of death by disease for children and adolescents in America, and it is essential that cures are found. In support of children fighting for their lives daily, KRS2 is dedicated to allocating funds for cancer research.
KRS2 is committed to supporting children during and after their battle with a life-threatening illness. We aim to reduce the financial impact of fighting a life-threatening illness by providing an opportunity for children to reach their full potential though financial support in the form of a scholarship for post-secondary education.

Scholarships for special interest activities are also provided for children during their battle, in an effort to keep children healthy, active and happy. Special interest scholarships come in the form of swimming lessons, and other safe and healthy activities.
