58 years of support from Oklahoma Mothers’ Clubs

The mothers of Oklahoma are taking care of the rest of the state, as usual.

For 58 years, members of the Oklahoma Association of Mothers’ Clubs have worked to keep the state—and the world—healthy by supporting research at OMRF. With a donation of $2,709, bringing their lifetime total giving to $130,015 since 1955, the group continues to assist researchers targeting cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases.

“OMRF does work that is close to our hearts,” said OAMC Treasurer Teresa Fletcher, of Kingfisher. “As our members age, we see more and more the benefit of the work done by researchers in addressing heart disease, lupus and other diseases.”

Each year, chapters run bake sales, golf tournaments, 5k runs and even sell homemade noodles with funding vital research at OMRF in mind.

“The Oklahoma Association of Mothers’ Clubs has been a staunch supporter of OMRF, almost from the very beginning,” said OMRF senior development associate Allison Coleman. “Their dedication to improving health through research is inspiring. We are so thankful for their gifts.”

The association, founded in 1940, is made up of Mothers’ Clubs in the following Oklahoma cities:

  • Canton
  • Edmond
  • Fairland
  • Fairview
  • Goldsby
  • Hennessey
  • Ponca City
  • Medford
