On Oct. 13, students from the Moffat High School Key Club donated new stuffed
animals to Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center for pediatric
patients. The students collected the toys from their community through
Kuddlez for Kidz, a program which provides hospitalized children with
stuffed animals and other comforting items. Kuddlez for Kidz was founded
by a Denver teen named Rylie who was diagnosed at age 7 with a disease
that required many hospital visits. She found that having a stuffed animal
made the tough appointments a little easier.
