Protecting our most precious resources - our children and our wildlife
This September, it is my goal to clean up 540 pounds of litter in my community which equates to the average amount of trash one family produces in 30 days. Each day will be dedicated to 3 children impacted by pediatric cancer. 90 children. My goal - to raise $100 for every child being dedicated, because their story matters. My goal is to raise a total of $9,000, because Wes’ story STILL matters. I made him a promise that I would never stop fighting for the causes he was so desperately passionate about. I am always and forever #InspiredByWes. Will you support my goal? Will you make a donation in honor/memory of these 90 children who have fought/ are fighting just to live one more day?

You will soon be able to "adopt" one of our local animals currently residing at our partnered Wes' Wildlife Village Rehab Center here in Virginia. Your donation will help provide care for injured/abandoned wildlife.
Our amazing team of volunteers are committed to helping to fulfill Wes' legacy. We strive in supporting childhood cancer families until better treatment options are available as well as in protecting our environment and the wildlife that resides here. Wes showed us that one person can make a difference! Change starts with each and every one of us. Would you like to get involved? See our form below for more information!
The Wes Strong Foundation, formerly known as United In GRACE, was founded by individuals with a passion to change the views of the world and fight for the children who battle on a daily basis with the monster known as childhood cancer. After the community rallied together with others to help Krista and her son, Wes, and through an amazing act of kindness, compassion, and awareness led by members of the community, complete strangers came together to unite in the battle against childhood cancer.
Additionally, Wes had a passion for animals. His final wish before passing was to inspire others to help clean up the environment and protect the animals. We wanted to ensure that both the support for those fighting pediatric cancer as well as Wes' dream to save the environment continued, therefore The Wes Strong Foundation was formed to see that Wes' legacy lived on.
The Wes Strong Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose purpose is to help protect our most precious resources, our children, by supporting those facing pediatric cancer, and our wildlife by supporting the efforts in environment and wildlife conservation.
Your support and contributions will enable us to make a difference in the lives of others and the environment. Your generous donation will greatly support our mission.
