The Provo Open's Heartfelt Contribution to Kaufusi's Keikis

Big day for our community as we presented a heartfelt $25,000 check to the Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Kaufusi’s Keikis Health Outreach Program at Timpanogos Elementary School! This generous donation from the Provo Open’s 2023 Golf Tournament kicks off our journey towards a healthier future for Provo’s children, in partnership with Noorda-COM and Provo City School District.



Starting May 1st, Kaufusi’s Keikis will provide Provo’s elementary-aged children with opt-in, free, and annual health screenings—including scoliosis checks, neurological exams, cardiopulmonary tests, and more.


This is personal to me because I was that ‘free reduced lunch kid’ being raised by a single mom with seven kids. We were always in survival mode as a family, so my success would not have been possible without a caring community who stepped in to make a difference. Kaufusi’s Keikis is another example of our caring community coming together for the health of our children. I can’t think of a more important cause than addressing health disparities and promoting health equity.

 

Health screenings will be conducted by Noorda-COM student doctors under faculty supervision. Eventually, other pre-med and healthcare students will join in this interdisciplinary, collaborative effort to help the children of Provo thrive.


Funding for this program is through private donations and sponsorship gifts made through the Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine Foundation, an IRS approved 501 (c)3 public charity (EIN#85-4017994) as well as donated time and service.” To date, Noorda-COM has received approximately $25,000 in donations from the Provo Advantage Pro-Ams and Provo Open and $10,000 from Utah Valley Hospital in support of this initiative.
