The Bend Your Knees Foundation is a Georgia 501(c) 3 non-profit started in loving memory of Collins Dixon to raise money to be able to give back to others. Our focus is to spread awareness of Brain tumors in children, support families with a child that has a brain tumor and support other organization that work with children with brain tumors such as the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children.

How do we do this?
1 – Raise Awareness of kids with brain tumors.
We raise awareness through t-shirts sales, Collins’ Scholarships, support of community events, and the various fund raisers we do or support.
2 – Support Families with a child with a brain tumor.
We support local families that have a child with a brain tumor by giving directly to a family and help the family with fund raising efforts.
3 – Support other organizations and events to reach families in other communities.
Through the funds we raised over the past 2 years we have been able to help several families not only locally in Cherokee County, but throughout the Southeast. For instance, working with the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children through the Collins Dixon Memorial fund we have been able to give to children outside of our local reach. By doing so we were able to help the families of 14 children in the following states this past year: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Giving Back to others is only part of the mission of Collins’ foundation. Collins’ faith in the Lord Jesus Christ was strong. As his body grew weaker, his faith grew stronger. Jesus was real to Collins’. He showed us how to FINISH STRONG!
Thank you for your interest in Collins’ foundation. Please check our website often as we are in the process of redesigning the site.
God Bless and FINISH STRONG!

Donate Today! to Collins' Bench
The bench will be placed at Collins’ grave site for friends and family to use while visiting Collins’ grave. We are raising the monies needed for Collins Bulldog bench. There is a 5 month turnaround on the bench from the order date because the color granite is shipped from overseas. The goal is to place the order in time so the bench can be installed in time for the 2016 football season which is Collins’ senior year of high school.
Support Collins’ Team! Help us raise money for Collins’ Bulldog Bench! https://t.co/WWFFPmqgr8
