A Kid Again Central Ohio

A Kid Again Central Ohio is a children’s charity based in Columbus, Ohio.  We are honored to serve families who are raising children living with life-threatening conditions across Central Ohio region. We do so by providing cost-free, fun-filled destination events throughout the year that we call Adventures.

Through these Adventures, families can take a break from doctor visits and hospital stays and enjoy quality time together. Enrollment is open to families with children under 20 years of age whose diagnosis is deemed life-threatening by a medical professional.
