Since 2002, Colter's Toy Box has provided comfort, financial support and encouragement across Oklahoma to children with cancer and their families.
Colter's Toy Box was established to help families and children dealing with cancer. Events are hosted as a time to remember not only the battle that Colter fought, but the battle that is still being fought by so many children today. Colter would have wanted us to help - so we are. Children should not have to worry about things like their white blood cell count or the date of their next chemo treatment. They should out running and playing without a care in the world, "just being a kid". We do this in honor of a brave little boy who fought his battle with all that he had, while doing his best to have fun in the middle of the crazy mess that is cancer.
Colter’s Toy Box is a nonprofit 501C3 foundation dedicated to providing comfort, financial support and encouragement across Oklahoma to children with cancer and their families. We provide joy, support and toys in high doses with purpose of making a difference in the life of a child battling cancer, all while remembering a amazing little boy and honoring those still fighting this battle. We believe TOGETHER we can make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer.
