History of Coaches for the Kids

Coaches for the Kids Foundation along with Coach Mark Stoops and the UK football coaching staff host the annual Coaches for the Kids event. The event benefits University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital and Kentucky’s children. As a result of the generous support of the Big Blue Nation, the Coaches for Kids event has raised over $2 million to help support the children of Kentucky!

The money raised from the Coaches for the Kids event helped renovate an area of the hospital appropriately called the “Hall of Champions” – a hallway within University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital dedicated to UK football and featuring athletes from various sports who have excelled in their respective athletic careers. The purpose of the hallway is to create a fun and welcoming environment for patients and their families! Thank you for helping us transform this space into an uplifting and encouraging area for patients and families who need to receive care at University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital. The “Hall of Champions” is now complete, but we are not done. We must continue to invest in the health of Kentucky’s future generations.

Thank you for supporting Kentucky’s kids!
