"Breast cancer certainly doesn’t take a break, so neither will the Kelly Cares Foundation,” Paqui says. “We will keep raising awareness and contributing until cancer takes a permanent time out."
The Kelly Cares Foundation was established by the Brian and Paqui Kelly family to support organizations, initiatives and programs that closely align with the goals and values of the Kelly family. A strong emphasis has been made on three main pillars: Health, Education, and Community.
To accomplish its mission, Kelly Cares emphasizes:
Through promoting breast cancer awareness, supporting those in need, funding valuable research, and encouraging prevention.
By funding educational research and supporting institutional advancement at all levels and capacities.
Strong communities are a direct result of active participation on the part of their citizens. The Foundation supports projects and initiatives that encourage the engagement of individuals in their local communities.
