Run For The Hills Charity Challenge

Coal For Kids Inc. is a nonprofit organization that has provided thousands of children in Eastern Kentucky with school clothes, shoes, hygiene supplies, and food.

Coal For Kids Inc. came about as a result of local Miners working on various Christmas projects.  Several Miners gave voice to the idea that some children don’t just need shoes, coats, and food at Christmas, and that they would like to be able to help throughout the year.


Through the generosity of local Miners making monthly contributions combined with contributions from interested businesses and individuals as well, Coal For Kids Inc. is able to provide needs for children in our community.

The downturn in the coal industry has been felt in the nonprofit organizations due to loss of contributions. Thankfully, Coal For Kids Inc. is one of seventeen organizations meeting the requirements of the Foundation For Appalachian Kentucky to participate in the Run For The Hills Charity Challenge.

You can support Coal For Kids Inc. during the Charity Challenge August 1- October 31. Then come out on October 4 for a 5K and Youth Fun Run.

The money raised by Coal For Kids Inc. during the campaign goes to support daily operations. The Foundation will match all funds raised by participants up to $150,000, and invest the match into a permanent endowment fund at the Foundation. 

Coal For Kids Inc. will be hosting several events during the Charity Challenge to raise money such as a yard sale Labor Day weekend in the Applebee’sparking lot located in Hazard. The organization will be participating in the Black Gold Festival. Also, a drawing for a lawn mower and Samsung Galaxy phone will take place.

You can also get involved by making a donation.
