MISSION: The mission of The McKenzie Meningitis Foundation, a nonprofit corporation, is to pursue charitable, medical, educational and scientific projects in honor of McKenzie Carter Hartwig.
HISTORY: One year after McKenzie's death, Ken and Laurie Hartwig, along with the support of close friends and community members, organized The McKenzie Meningitis Foundation. "We wanted to do something," says Ken Hartwig. "We wanted to turn McKenzie's tragic death into something positive and meaningful, and we feel this is a major step forward." Over the years, the foundation has vaccinated a large majority of teens in Sublette County and promoted state-wide education about this disease. The foundation also helped the National Meningitis Foundation produce an award winning educational video. "Getting It: A Disease... A Vaccine" along with educational packets for school health classes.
TODAY: The McKenzie Meningitis Foundation continues to promote awareness of the dangers of meningococcal meningitis with informational campaigns across Wyoming and financially assists with vaccinations of Sublette County youth against the disease.
Your support and contributions will enable us to reach more people and vaccinate more youth. Thank you!!
