Cultural and Recreational Enrichment Scholarship Program
The C.A.R.E.S. Program was established in cooperation with Cathy Cieslak from Louisville, Kentucky who provided the initial funding for this program. Cathy, whose son has hemophilia and who is actively involved in swimming, baseball, bowling, and chess and the Kentucky Hemophilia Foundation realize the importance of children’s involvement in cultural and recreational activities for the development of self-esteem and physical well-being, especially when growing up with a chronic disorder. This scholarship program will help offer an opportunity to children to explore their talents, dreams, and abilities. C.A.R.E.S. scholarship awards are intended as start-up funding for cultural and recreational activities. Awards will be made based on availability of funds. We thank Cathy for caring and for working with us to develop this important program.
