"We are thrilled to once again host the sixth annual Summer Olympics," said Missie Brown, owner of Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Keller. "This inspiring event is not only about teaching children the value of teamwork and working together towards a common goal, but also the importance of giving back and its impact on the local community."

"We were honored to visit the Kids 'R' Kids students at the centers to discuss with them how their fundraising efforts directly impact the lives of our patients," said Stephanie Brigger, vice president of development for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. "The children were able to learn about how they can help others and experience the joy of giving back. The hospital relies on the generosity of the community, and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this year's efforts."
