As a family member of this sweet child that was taken from us too soon, I know the intentions of this organization are pure. They have no other agenda than bringing this terrible childhood disease to the forefront and to make people more aware. Dixon family keep up the good work for the Bend Your Knees Foundation, what you are doing is a great thing!
Bend Your Knees, Inc. (BYK) is a Foundation that was formed as a way to help increase the awareness of childhood brain cancer and to support families that are facing the battle and journey of a child with brain cancer. As a Father, I watched the parents of Collins Dixon deal with all the adversity of having a sick child and how Collins dealt with this terrible disease. I was humbled by the life of Collins and through this foundation and my ability to donate my time, I have found a way to keep the memory of Collins alive and help give back to others on a similar journey. This Foundation is one worth supporting! For more on the life of Collins go to: www.BendYourKnees4Collins.net
I watched this organization take root in the faith of a young boy and galvanize a community's spirit. Since then, this family has continued their sons mission throughout their tireless efforts of fundraising to help other families who are going through similar situations as they did. Always with a smile and a hug, it lifts my heart every time our oaths cross. I am proud to participate in their charity 5k each year.
As a teacher at their son's school and their neighbor, this family and their organization has touched my heart in ways I cannot explain. As a prayer for their amazing son, "Bend Your Knees for Collins" t-shirts were seen everywhere on friends, family, students and teachers all over the community. Using that for the name of their organization, Bend Your Knees is just exactly what they would do for any other family going through what they went through with their son. This organization goes above and beyond to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer. Simply amazing.
This family took what was a very difficult time for them and used it to help others. They host an amazing 5k each year that has become one of the best road races in Georgia. Love Bend your knees, inc!!!!
I am amazed every time Bend your Knees, Inc is present and involved in our community. Their heart is for the Lord, to honor Collins Dixon and the help those in need. It is truly the organization that will be there to help other families with children with cancer. Their actions give hope and strength to those in need. Out of their loss, they chose to give back.
