ROADSHOW GIVES BACK

In August, we partnered with the Kosten Foundation. The Kosten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research was founded in 2003 by the family of Herb Kosten after his death due to pancreatic cancer. Kosten’s family sought to improve community support, awareness, and funding for pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest known cancers. The organization has raised close to $2,000,000 for pancreatic cancer research and hosts a very active monthly support group meeting for patients, their families, and anyone interested in learning more about pancreatic cancer.

In 2004, in honor of Kosten’s love of tennis, the Memphis-based organization began hosting annual tennis tournaments to raise money to fight pancreatic cancer, and in 2011 the group held its first Kick It 5K run/walk. The annual signature event has grown to include more than 2,500 participants. Money raised from the Kick It 5K and other Kosten Foundation events helps fund pancreatic cancer research and support fellowship training for future pancreatic cancer surgeons. In addition, the Foundation presents a yearly symposium headlined by nationally recognized leaders in the field of pancreatic cancer.

In April, we partnered with Girl Scouts Heart of the South. The Girl Scouts are all about practicing everyday leadership and preparing girls to empower themselves, because girls who lead the Girl Scout way are more likely to reach their full potential. By providing positive role models and mentors for girls of all ages, Girl Scouts prepares girls with the skills and experiences they need to empower themselves for life.

Girl Scouts Heart of the South strives to do that, right here in our area where girls need us the most. Recent data shows that economic conditions affecting girls in the U.S. have not recovered from the Great Recession that began in late 2007. In fact, they have worsened. Thirty percent of school-aged girls in Mississippi are living in poverty -- the highest percentage in the nation -- with Tennessee and Arkansas not far behind. Our girls also fare about the worst in the nation in areas of well-being such as physical health and safety, economics, emotional health and participation in extracurricular activities. These are key areas and issues that Girl Scouts seeks to directly address by becoming a positive force for change in girls’ lives. The team at Heart of the South is committed to helping solve these troubling issues. Join with us! Get involved with Girl Scouts and be a part of our efforts to be an instrument of change to all girls in our area!
