Mission

Playing 4 Hope is a non-profit organization that provides an outlet of hope for children who are in the hospital due to disability, illness or disease. We believe that a hopeful child can heal more quickly. Playing 4 Hope focuses on giving back to both the children and the community they live in. By connecting a child with a collegiate athlete from the community, we lay the foundation for an everlasting relationship that is built on inspiration. Together with hope, they both can win.

Hospital Visits

Athletes from the University of Missouri visit children at MU Women's and Children's Hospital in Columbia, MO. During the visit, the children are giving a personal message of strength and encouragement, a gift basket and a wristband. The wristband symbolizes that the athlete has dedicated their game, and their fight, to the child. On game days, we provide food and a "tailgate" for every patient and their family on the pediatric floor.
