KIDS CHANCE - Join DV RIMS on Saturday, October 18 in Fairmont Park, Philadelphia to support Kids' Chance of PA! 

Since 2008, the Kids' Chance of PA Walk/Run events have raised more than $100,000 towards scholarship grants for college and vocational education to the children of Pennsylvania workers who have been killed or injured in a work-related accident. Thanks to the generosity and support of DV RIMS, Kids' Chance of PA is able to make this happen. 

College loan debt has reached an all-time high. The government is passing new legislation intended to combat the issue, but the problem still remains: Many students cannot obtain a college education without the help of scholarships. Now is the time to take action. Put on the Kids' Chance of PA 2014 Walk/Run T-shirt and join us in support of Kids' Chance scholarships this October. 

Additional information will be be sent when available. 

If you have any questions or concerns about either event, please contact the Chapter Chair for Community Service, Sara Potter, potters@email.chop.edu
