Young & Healthy invites you to be swept off your skis for a black diamond evening of aprés ski festivities! Relax and elevate yourself for hot toddies, gourmet indulgences and mingling with friends. Find yourself at the top of the mountain, leisurely overlooking a unique silent auction after a day on the slopes. We’ll sway to the music of the breeze through the alpines and kick it up later for some live bidding on your next ski vacation. So, grab your after ski boots and get ready for a frosty evening of fun in support of Young & Healthy!

(Effective March 10, 2017)
Twelve-year-old Amadia has never walked or talked. She has lived with daily seizures since she was a baby. Her parents were told that she has cerebral palsy. As luck would have it, Amadia’s family recently came to Pasadena so that her father could study theology at Fuller Seminary. Since in Pasadena, their lives have already changed drastically. Amadia was running low on her medication and the family did not have insurance, but found its way to Young & Healthy via a posted flier. Young & Healthy referred Amadia to a volunteer neurologist for a full work up, where it was discovered that she does not have cerebral palsy at all. In fact, she actually has a manageable seizure disorder. A change in medication was prescribed and magically life changed for the entire family. Amadia’s seizures came to a dramatic stop! All this was possible due to the access of health care.
This is one of many situations that Young & Healthy encounters. Underserved or uninsured families lack access to health care or lack the understanding of how to get it. Countless Pasadena families shoulder their pain of poverty and/or access to care by going without. “Unmasking” health care for these vulnerable children has been Young & Healthy’s mission for 26 years and we are committed to continuing the simple solution of connecting children in need with professional volunteers who wish to help. BOTTOM LINE: No child should go without the health care they need.
Young & Healthy provides the gift of health care, one child at a time. This, in turn, strengthens the child, the family and our community as a whole. Needy children in our community are a reality, not just random people in far-away places. To help a child is an investment in our community’s future. Young & Healthy can continue to invest in our children by offering health and hope, but we need YOUR help. For every dollar contributed, Young & Healthy receives an additional $1.68 in donated services.
During this holiday season, we ask for your assistance in being part of the solution for children in need.
In gratitude for your support,
Darrell Done, Board President Mary Donnelly-Crocker, Executive Director
