Nobody has your back quite like your mother. OMRF has enjoyed that kind of support for 62 years.
On April 13, the Oklahoma Association of Mothers’ Clubs donated $1,632 to the Oklahoma City-based nonprofit research institute, presenting a check at their annual banquet at the Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City.
With the more recent gift, it brings the Mothers’ Clubs total contributions to OMRF to more than $125,553.
The donations go to research for cancer, heart disease and autoimmune disease research. It has even funded the purchase of lab supplies and paid for summer scholarships for state high school and college students.
Each year, OAMC members across the state raise money for OMRF by holding bake sales, golf tournaments, 5k runs, and father-daughter dances.
“We are so fortunate to have their ongoing commitment. This dedication has truly helped lead to discoveries that make a difference in the lives of many,” said OMRF development stewardship coordinator Marissa Valdez. “Words cannot describe how grateful we are for their friendship and their passion to build a stronger, healthier community for all of us.”
The association, founded in 1940, is made up of Mothers’ Clubs in the following Oklahoma cities:
