In June of 2018, 7-year-old Kort Steffens endured a UTV accident that caused serious soft tissue damage to his arm and hand. He spent 18 days in Mayo hospital, underwent 6 surgeries, and months of physical therapy that ultimately conserved the function of his hand. Friends, family, and the community gathered together to support the Steffens family with a benefit that helped Kort’s family tremendously with medical bills.
This year, Kort’s family and friends have gathered together to repurpose the previously named Kickin' It For Kort benefit and introduce the Kickin' It Forward Foundation to help other families in need. This non-profit foundation will raise money to help families facing medical emergencies. Fundraiser plans are underway to have a kickball tournament for adults and youth, silent auction and raffle, along with kid and adult games and activities.
Somewhere along the way, we must learn that there is nothing greater than to do something for others.
