About: Reach for Kids is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization created in 1998 by the Independent Pilots Association (IPA), the collective bargaining unit representing the pilots who fly for United Parcel Service.

Over the past 25 years, our IPA Foundation and IPA Reach for Kids charities have donated over $7 million to local, national, and international children's charities!

RFK Mission: Through charitable events, RFK raises money to benefit children’s charities in the Louisville, KY area. This is one way in which the IPA and its members can give back to the community in which the IPA is headquartered.

IPA RFK Sponsors Bowman Field 4-Miler Oct. 6, Raises Money for Kosair Charities

The IPA's Reach for Kids (RFK) Charity will again sponsor the Bowman Field 4-Miler, a family-friendly run/walk held on Saturday, October 6. The event is held each year as part of the Bowman Aviation & Military Heritage Festival Oct. 6-7.

RFK is continuing its mission of supporting local children's charities by raising money this year for Kosair Charities, which currently supports over 200 pediatric agencies with funding for research, clinical services, healthcare, and education every year. Five dollars from each 4-Miler registration will benefit Kosair. Proceeds from an online auction (Kick in for Kosair) and raffle will also benefit Kosair.

Please stay tuned for much more information about RFK 2018!
