It's a "FUNderwear" Party!
Please join us on Wednesday, June 30 from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. at the Clegern Elementary School playground for the K Club "FUNderwear" Party! We will be collecting underwear for the Homeless Alliance. Their greatest need is women's underwear, but they also need men's underwear as well. We will also collect travel size toiletries to donate.
If you are unable to attend the party or want to shop in advance, you can use our Amazon Wishlist to ship the underwear directly to us.
All ages are welcome to attend! (This is not a "drop off" event, so parents will need to stay and supervise their children.) Please help us provide this basic necessity to those experiencing homelessness in Oklahoma City and reach our goal of collecting 1300 pairs of underwear.

Keaton Barrón Charity Classic
Thank you to our sponsors, golfers, and volunteers who made the 2021 Keaton Barrón Charity Classic a huge success! This event raised $69,000 for the Children's Hospital Foundation and the K Club. It was a wonderful day of golf, and we are so grateful to everyone who made this event possible. We look forward to seeing everyone at next year's event.
RED DAY RUN
Team K Club, we need you to join us for the 2021 Red Day Run! This Edmond 5K gives away thousands of dollars to local charities. This year, we are a "tithe charity," and we are working to become one of the main charities next year. How do we do that? We need to register more participants than any of the other tithe charities, and we know we can do it!
Join us on Saturday, October 23 in Downtown Edmond as we run, walk, or even just hang out together as Team K Club.
How to register for the Red Day Run:
IMPORTANT! The Red Day Run does have its own website for registration, but we need you to REGISTER WITH US so that you can be counted as a part of our team. We will then submit all registrations for Team K Club to the Red Day Run.

Keaton Lucas Barrón
How does one describe the best person he or she has ever known? Keaton Lucas was born on March 21, 2010. He was the sweetest baby - always happy, laid-back, and full of joy.
As a toddler, he was an "old soul" who loved Mickey Mouse, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the OSU Cowboys. After a few unexplained illnesses, his parents took him to the doctor and heard the words no parent ever wants to hear, "It looks like leukemia." Keaton was rushed to OU Children's Hospital and began treatment immediately.
For three and a half years, Keaton battled this disease and successfully finished chemotherapy on December 27, 2015. However, he relapsed on March 22, 2016, and relapsed again on July 18, 2017. He fought hard, taking every medication and following every order given by his doctors who worked so hard to try and save him.
Throughout his five and a half years of chemotherapy, radiation, t-cell therapy and more, Keaton remained positive, agreeable, hilarious, and sweet. He always put others ahead of himself and fought with grace and courage, never complaining about the countless hospital and clinic visits or missing out on so many life experiences because of his illness. Keaton was a shining example of what it means to live with kindness, courage, compassion, and care for others every single day.
Keaton passed away at home on May 11, 2018. He touched many lives, taught others about faith, hope, and never giving up, and leaves a legacy that his family and friends hope to share for years to come.
