The Spina Bifida Association of Greater Kansas City is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to serving families facing the challenges of living with Spina Bifida. Our mission is to offer educational programs and social interaction opportunities as well as offering financial assistance to those families as they purchase necessary medical equipment and supplies such as wheelchairs, leg braces, walkers and crutches. There are approximately 30 to 35 children in the metro area that we serve at this time. Bug Bam proudly supports the annual SPKC Fishing Day.
Life begins at 55, at least it does for more than 600 Veterans competing in this national event, the premier senior adaptive rehabilitation program in the United States.

It is one of the most progressive and adaptive rehabilitative senior sports programs in the world, offering 14 different sports and recreational activities. Bug Bam has supported volunteers and athletes since 2005.
In 1998 the first Lighthouse team went to The Gambia, Western Africa. The needs of the people were clear immediately, but their warmth and appreciation were evident as well. This made an impact on our hearts and our relationships with the African people has kept us coming back.
Since then, Lighthouse Medical Missions, working with the Door Christian Fellowship in Africa, has organized medical missions to Sierra Leone, Liberia, Burundi, The Democratic Republic of the Congo and The Gambia. We have also built churches, schools, constructed water projects and dug wells.
The vision of Lighthouse Medical Missions is to bring the love of God to the sick and dying in the poorer nations of the world. Our teams consist of volunteers who freely give of their time and finances to reach the forgotten and neglected with the truth of the Gospel through medicine.
Bug Bam is proud to be an ongoing contributor to Lighthouse Medical Missions and a major sponsor of the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Walk to Africa events in Santa Monica, CA.
