About our Children’s Charity

Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids is a charitable organization founded by Boston Red Sox infielder Kevin Youkilis, dedicated to rallying local and corporate support for charities and organizations focused on the health and wellbeing of children. Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids teams up with existing community-based children's charities and medical research programs in New England and in Kevin's home town of Cincinnati, to help them raise money and awareness.

Some of the organizations that Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids is working with include:
  • The Italian Home for Children, providing a comprehensive network of services to emotionally disturbed boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 14.

  • Joslin Pediatric Health Services, caring for over 2,500 pediatric patients, including more than half of the young people with diabetes in Eastern Massachusetts.

  • Christopher's Haven, a haven for young cancer patients and their families — providing lodging so families can focus on their child's treatment and recovery.

  • Lovelane, a special needs horseback riding program, providing therapeutic horseback riding to children with disabilities with the focus on improving independence, therapy goals and confidence in their lives.

  • Nativity Preparatory School, a Jesuit founded, independent, accredited, middle school dedicated to providing a quality, tuition-free education to economically disadvantaged boys living in Boston.

  • Growing up surrounded by the precious gifts of family, friends, community and religion, Kevin Youkilis has long been passionate about giving back to the community. Over the years, he has sought after opportunities to make a difference and has participated in a variety of philanthropic efforts.

    Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids will initially focus on two regions — New England (the heart of Red Sox Nation), and Cincinnati, where Kevin was born and raised.
