There is an amazing amount of resilience in the kids we meet at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House and through Blues for Kids.

What you do really makes a difference.

The hospitalized children that we meet are strong and resilient, fighting battles that nobody should ever have to endure alone. These kids and their families face challenges and adversity every day. They’re adapting to a life of uncertainty, never knowing what the next day will bring. We want to stand by their side when they’re experiencing fear, anxiety and traumatic experiences.

Project 55 Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to bring comfort and relief to hospitalized children and their families by alleviating their emotional, physical and financial burdens. We believe that every child deserves to enjoy what it means to be a child. We’re here as teammates to our young heroes to lift them up, even in their toughest moments.

Spearheaded by St. Louis Blues defenseman, Colton Parayko.
