Collins Fall of 2011

The Bend Your Knees Foundation does not receive any government funding to provide its services. It relies solely on the generosity of individual donors, grants from foundations and corporate giving programs, and proceeds raised through BYK fundraisers which include the Collins Dixon Bend Your Knees 5K and the Collins Dixon Bend Your Knees Golf Outing.

Donations from individuals make up a major portion of gifts received by Bend Your Knees, Inc.  These gifts are extremely important — it is the way we as a community are able to carry on Collins wish to give back to others.  A donation can be made in memory or in honor of a loved one or friend, in celebration of a birthday, anniversary, marriage, graduation or other special event.  Every donation is special.

Monies raised will be used for the Collins FitzGerald Dixon Scholarship, raise awareness of brain tumors in children, and to help families with a child that is fighting a brain tumor.

Collins FitzGerald Dixon was called home to be with God January 14th, 2012. We are praising Jesus and so thankful that Collins passing was peaceful. Collins is now fully healed and restored. If we could see just a momentary glimpse of the amazing splendor and Glory of Heaven right now, we would be able to see Collins fully healed BY HIS STRIPES and the celebration that is happening right now is beyond anything we have ever seen or witnessed on earth. The lives that Collins has impacted and witnessed to and the dedications of souls for eternal salvation- total numbers of lives forever given to Jesus Christ is something we will never know…until the day that we are each called home…but we know that number is many and fully believing that by forever sharing Collins story and testimony of his UNWAVERING faith will continue to change lives…

Together we all will FINISH STRONG!
PLEASE NOTE: Upon payment you may provide comments in the “special instructions” field to indicate if your donation is in honor or in memory of a loved one, in recognition of an anniversary, birthday or wedding, or for any other occasion. If you would like us to notify someone that a gift from you has been made (we do not provide the amount), please also include that person’s name and address.
