Just for Kids
Your involvement with Canines For Disabled Kids is direct. Unlike other organizations where a portion of your support goes toward it’s goal, here at CDK you truly help an individual. Whether is be through scholarships to offset the cost of the dogs for the children we help, counseling services for families looking for information about service dogs, or education offered around the country to interested businesses and schools, CDK is always trying to reach as many people as possible.
Mission: To join organizational forces in the creation of authentic and inclusive opportunities that empower children and youth to lead positive change in their communities.
Parents want the best for their children. We do, too. For the first time ever, 15 nonprofit organizations have joined forces to support parents of the one in five children with learning and attention issues throughout their journey.

Sandy Getman is the driving force behind the mission of this organization. Having a granddaughter with Muscular Dystrophy, Sandy has seen firsthand the difficulties one goes through to get the essential equipment needed to help with day-to-day activities. When Sandy’s granddaughter was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at the age of two, she knew there was nothing she could do about it, but had to DO something. She held her first fundraiser (a Christmas Luncheon, a tradition that continues today) and raised $400 dollars and was thrilled to be able to donate that money to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Since then, Wheel to Walk has flourished and places their focus on purchasing medical equipment and services for children with special needs so they can thrive and be the best of themselves.
