All proceeds from the event will go to help support LEAP Global Missions, a Dallas-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides free specialized surgical and medical care to children living in impoverished regions around the world.
Inspired by the love of Christ, our work helps those who have no other options. By giving of our time and expertise, loving unconditionally, and humbly serving humanity, we demonstrate our faith through actions. Those we serve receive the highest level of care possible regardless of religious affiliation or cultural differences. Volunteers with various backgrounds are welcomed and supported. We bring this inclusiveness into our global partnerships as well.
Through the Mission Program, we send surgical teams to the same communities that have come to trust and rely upon LEAP to offer ongoing care to children with otherwise unmet surgical needs and to continue care for those who require long-term medical treatment. In times of natural disaster, we also deploy surgical teams as part of a first responder effort in affected areas around the world. In 2019, we have mission trips to India, Haiti, Belize, Mexico, and Zimbabwe planned, so the funds raised will travel far and help hundreds of children.
In partnership with Medical City Children’s Hospital in Dallas, our Landmark Program provides extensive, high-quality medical and surgical care to underserved children with such severe craniofacial issues that long-term treatment in their home countries is not feasible. We also arrange their travel to the U.S. and host families to provide a loving environment between surgeries and while they heal. The children served by the Landmark Program often require multiple surgeries that are too complicated to perform in their own countries. In many cases, they are allowed to stay in the United States for an extended period of time. Often, we are able to help orphaned patients through an adoption process while they are in the U.S.
