Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Emergency Assistance, Health, Health Support, Human Services

Mission: Walk On Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We will serve to align resources of individuals and corporations to impact the lives of those in our communities by providing assistance with medical equipment, safety devices and financial assistance related to medical hospitalization. Walk On Foundation aims to achieve this mission by: * Awarding grants to individuals and families whose needs meet our mission. * Educating individuals, communities and businesses of our purpose and the need for our services. * Establishing community projects. * Using the power of social networking in order to provide a better life for those dealing with medical crisis, safety hazards, and hospitalizations. * Working along side other non-profit organizations to assist in tasks that are consistent with our mission.

Results: This year we spent a lot of assisting a local family with over $30,000 in medical expenses, over $6000 for an allergen peanut dog, and over $38000 in mobility devices to Haiti, to name just a few.

Target demographics: person and or persons with medical issues that would otherwise not be assisted.

Geographic areas served: Walk On Foundation focuses locally first, but does provide services all over the United States and even some other countries.

Programs: These are all examples, but your donor dollars are stretched to the max and we have a complete file that shows where donor were given and what they were used for.

I have a child with several health problems. Thankfully we have insurance to cover medical expenses but they do not cover homeopathic remedies. Since medical treatments were not working we wanted to try a Lavender Bear that heats in the microwave for my then 2 year old son. He could put it on his legs when his PLMD and restless leg syndrom acted up. I couldn't afford the $35 bear. Walk on Foundation contacted the company that has the bears and she donated one to my son. We can do a lot of things from home, but calling someone to say you don't have the money is hard. WOF did what I couldn't do for my son. Thanks again WOF!!!!

I am a 30 year old female with different medical conditions. I was in need of money to travel a distance to pick up a handicapp van and I had no means to pick it up. WOF provided the money needed for me to be able to get the van and bring it home. I am greatful for what they have done. I had no way to be able to pay for the travel.

I cannot say enough good about this foundation! Our son suffers from a large array of disabilities, and was in need of a fully enclosed bed to keep him safe at night. The bed he had been using was one he had had since age 3...and he was now 16...and no longer fit into his old bed. I posted a wish on Wish Upon A Hero, for a device to fit over his bed, to keep him safe at night... this was seen by Walk On...and they found someone to donate a fully enclosed bed to our son...not only the bed, but they also found a company to ship it to us as well! God bless them for this amazing gift to our child...finally he can sleep safe, and comfortably in a bed that fits him! His first night in that bed...he gave us the biggest smile...a smile we hadn't seen in a LONG while! He was SO happy to be able to stretch out, and not have to sleep with bent legs,all scrunched up.... Walk On is a Godsend to those of us who simply cannot afford the costs of much needed medical equipment...We never could have gotten this bed without their amazing help! Walk On Foundation has this family's undying gratitude and heart-felt thanks....they are simply put...Amazing!

I was having a horrible time with allergies and it was affecting my asthma. The same with my 6 yr old daughter. I wished for one air filtration allergy machine. I would then lug it back and forth up and down the steps of my apartment. Walk On Foundation generously donated two of these machines so I could have one on each floor. Within 2-3 days of receiving the machines, I could not believe the relief! If it was not for Walk On Foundation, I would be so much worse of health wise. They help many people like me who are dealing with no insurance or are under-insured. They are truly amazing!!!!

The Walk on Foundation has been generously helping us raise money for my son to get an allergy detection dog. Once we contacted them within a week they had set up newspaper and radio interviews, 50/50 raffle ticket fundraiser, and had a stand set up for us at their annual Christmas Extravaganza. All of this helped to raise awareness to our need and help collect much more money then we could have on our own. Without the Walk on Foundation's help I know that we wouldn't have come as far as we have with raising the funds needed for my son's service dog.
