McCauley Constructors is proud to support Kawasaki Kids Foundation here in Colorado, and Shawn Logan, tireless founder of the organization. Shawn's dedication brought our attention to the organization through our Corporate Operations Manager, Caroline Hornback, a few years ago. Caroline having been involved in other fund raisers for Kawasaki Kids, orchestrated the event at McCauley's office on December 20th at 4:00 p.m.
McCauley Constructors annual charitable contribution has always been given back to the community to which we live and do business, and Kawasaki Kids Foundation fits that being located right here in Northern Colorado. Leon J. McCauley, President and CEO of McCauley Constructors was eager for the donation not only be financial, but also something tangible that the children would be able to play with, something to take their minds off their disease.
When the children arrived, a backpack was provided in a chair dedicated to them with their name displayed across it. In the backpack were numerous toys, a tee shirt and a Samsung tablet for them to play games. Cookies, hors d'oeuvres, apple cider and cake were displayed on the table. The look of surprise and wonderment in their eyes was priceless. Pictures in the slide show above capture the candid reactions as some of the children opened their packages. The joy and precious smiles were everywhere, they captured our hearts and their courage inspired us, for sure.
Kawasaki Disease is a serious illness characterized by inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body that primarily affects young children and infants. Kawasaki disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Although about 80 percent of patients are under five years of age, older children and teenagers can also get Kawasaki Disease, but this is uncommon. It is more common in boys than girls, and the majority of cases are diagnosed in the winter and early spring. It is not contagious.
