With Rainbows for Kids, every child feels special. Wheel chair, prosthetic leg, visually or hearing impaired, developmental problems … we love them all!

Welcome to Rainbows for Kids– a 501 (c)(3) charity in the greater St. Louis Area which works with families of children with cancer and other serious situations. We are celebrating our 20th year of being in operation serving all three pediatric hospitals in St. Louis: Cardinal Glennon, St. Louis Childrens, and Mercy Pediatrics. We also work with Ronald McDonald House and Camp Rainbow. If you know of a family who could benefit by our services, please let us know: RSVPRainbowsForKids@gmail.com.

Special Fund for WheelhairFor our 20th Anniversary we wanted to do something really special so we are building a wheelchair accessible playground at Watson Trails Park in St. Louis.

Rainbows for Kids was started when a little six-year old girl named Annie was diagnosed with cancer. She and her mom, Barb sang at our first gala in 2000 and Annie was one of our best volunteers– always helping others  despite her own battle. She got her angel wings at age 10– though everyone who knew her knew she was already an angel. She took many experimental treatments and hopefully because of her and others like her there is more hope every day for new cures and treatments.

We can’t cure cancer, but we can help families dealing with it have more fun together. We put on parties, events, spa days for the moms, and our most popular event each year: the All-Star Baseball Team featuring four practices and a game.

This year Cardinals Manager Mike Shildt came out and played baseball with the kids.
