A community of family & friends that 


and to that Kara's family is 4-EVER thankful!

Our history

The organization was founded in loving memory of Kara Lynn Lemanowicz, a lifelong Voorhees resident who passed away suddenly on September 5, 2015 at the tender age of 14.  Those who knew Kara would say she lived life to the fullest and had a smile on her face for everyone!  They also knew she held 2 things near & dear to her heart... competitive sports and taking care of young kids! Knowing something positive could come from her tragic loss would absolutely win a smile from her!

Our mission

To provide opportunity to underprivileged/special needs children in Camden County & the surrounding areas via financial assistance for, but not limited to sports fees, scholarship money & extra curricular activities.  This need may be identified/accomplished through individuals, local organizations, public/private schools and religious organizations who would be able to identify those families in need.
