The work we do allows kids to be kids…

Comcast Newsmakers shows the heart of Tracy’s Kids.  “Tracy’s Kids really provides the next level of comfort to [kids in treatment], allowing them to get out the stress,” says Dr. Michael Donnelly, MedStar Georgetown Pediatrics.

“And the Winner Is…”

 

We had a fabulous time on February 13 celebrating the movies, actors — and our REAL stars — our Tracy’s Kids patients and the art therapists who work with them!  Second Lady Karen Pence, a Tracy’s Kids board member, and Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill received the Courage Awards at our annual fundraiser.  Maryland First Lady Yumi Hogan, Board Member Marcelle Leahy, and superstar patient Tatum were on hand to help celebrate!

Where Do Our Donations Go?

 We are especially proud that Tracy’s Kids offers so much impact with so little overhead. The percentage of our funds dedicated to delivering our services — 84% in 2016 — is well above industry norms.
