Creating moments of uninhibited joy
At Brave Like Me, we believe every child deserves to live without limitations. That’s why we’re breaking down the barriers that isolate children with Complex Medical Conditions by providing experiences built around their interests and their individual needs.
Through activities like indoor rock climbing, high-ropes courses, go-karting, horseback riding, indoor skydiving and more, we serve children of all abilities. We’ve seen first-hand how participating in these adventures helps build resilience, overcome perceived limitations, instill confidence and inspire courage that propels these children through their lives.
For children and teens experiencing extended hospital stays, being separated from their pet is especially difficult. Though there are nearly 200 children’s hospitals nationwide, only a handful possess dedicated family pet centers. We are working to change that, starting with our Mobile Pet Center concept.
Our commitment to uplifting kids and creating moments of uninhibited joy spreads throughout our communities with our Brave Schools programs. Inspired by Brayden Otten’s enthusiasm and love for reading and learning, our Brayden’s Books initiative is a specially-curated collection of children’s and YA books that offers lessons in integrity, perseverance, curiosity and courage.
Take your first brave step toward helping children make connections, build empowering relationships, and achieve a more fulfilling life. Whether through a donation, volunteering your time, or sharing Brave Like Me’s mission, you’re part of the movement to help kids in our community live without limits.
