In March 2019, active outdoorsmen and college friends Wayne Brown and Kim Davies took seven girls from Big Oak Ranch on a fishing/hiking trip in Arkansas. This was a trial experience for us to see how things would go, in hopes of setting up a charity.
With the help of the management team from Big Oak Ranch, a home for abused, neglected, and abandoned children, the trip exceeded our expectations. The result is OUR KIDS OUTDOOR ADVENTURES, INC., a Non-Profit Corporation. Two other friends, Ken Blankenship of Deer Park, WA, and Bob Rinaldi of Moon Township, PA, have joined our Board of Directors.
Our collective goal is to give less fortunate kids, from all over the country, the opportunity to experience the outdoors. The smiles you will see on these kids faces will make it all worthwhile. It certainly did for us.
