Join us October 13th at Topanga State Park for our inaugural Mending Kids – “Hike to Mend “
An up to 5-mile hike symbolizing the distance that a parent in a developing country has to travel on foot to try to gain access to surgical care for their child. Walk a few miles in their shoes and help us provide them the care they desperately need.
We hike this October so Mending Kids can continue to offer critical surgical care to children in need all over the world, including in the USA. Every step you take with us, you take with them. By hiking and raising funds through your journey, you raise awareness of their struggle, and help these families return home with mended children and healthy futures.

Mending Kids provides free life-saving surgical care to sick children worldwide by deploying volunteer medical teams and educating communities to become medically self-sustaining.
The vibrant and significant history of Mending Kids International began with our founder and devoted full-time volunteer Cris Embleton almost 30 years ago. After the tragic passing of Cris' adopted daughter just prior to her first birthday, when $5 worth of medicine would have saved her life, Cris set out to make certain children around the world had access to life-saving surgeries and medical care.
