Welcome to the fundraising page in memory of Kevin Kimbrough Jr. We are in deep grief over the sudden loss of Kevin on Saturday, December 15, 2018, yet we are rejoicing over the many beautiful years we had together and wonderful memories we will always treasure. Kevin Jr was an amazing gift of God to his family, to his friends, and to this world. He will never ever be forgotten by the many people whose lives he impacted. While at the University of Florida, Kevin was very involved with Dance Marathon. He had a passion for both loving and helping others and dancing, so this was right up his alley. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to Dance Marathon as we know that this would honor Kevin in the best way possible.
Dance Marathon's mission is to help sick and injured kids in the local community around the University of Florida. UF Health Shands Children's Hospital, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury, or even their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid.
To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, Kevin participated many years in a movement called Dance Marathon at the University of Florida. Students pledge to raise funds and awareness for patient families at local children’s hospitals and the year culminates with a 26.2 hour event, where those involved get to meet patient families, participate in games and dancing, enjoy entertainment, and reveal the fundraising total from the entire year! It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support Kevin's efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to this hospital.
Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation.
Thank you so much for supporting Kevin's efforts!
