The how & the why

holmes

Dr. Peter Holmes began years ago stepping in and helping young people with sports injuries who could not afford complete care. Dr. Holmes was constantly contacted by families with children who have been injured primarily in school sports or other activities who could not get the proper orthopedic care due to lack of medical insurance. Thus the Orthopedic Kneed Foundation was formed.

If the Foundation has the funds to cover the hospital bills, Dr. Holmes and his team of professionals will do the surgeries and follow up including clinic visits, X-Rays, physical therapy, etc. at NO cost. We work with kids who otherwise will not be able to continue with their present life goals and ambitions. Funding is made possible with our annual fundraiser “Casino Night” as well as from individuals, corporations and foundations through donations, pledges, and grants. The Orthopedic Kneed Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) organization and is happy to issue tax effective receipts where applicable.
