Event Information

Axe throwing has been rated #1 in fun activities and games in the metro area. So, on Saturday, April 25th, we are partnering with The Axe Company in Fairview Heights to host a fun night to remember.

Roughly 15% of our active matches are with military and first responder professionals, our Big Heroes. These men and women make some of the most wonderful mentors. Help us match the best in our community with the dozens of Littles on our waitlist in need of a caring adult in their life!

Just like bowling at Cops for Kids‘ Sake, Raise an Axe will be a very similar format. Simply organize a team of six of your friends, family and/or colleagues and fundraise $750 as a team by rallying your network to donate for the cause.
