Our Mission

Tehyathon seeks to alleviate some of the anxiety and confusion commonly experienced in connection with a Spina Bifida diagnosis by creating various resources for patients and their families. Such resources include a comprehensive, online database containing information and links to area specialists in the field, support organizations, patient care advice and descriptions of various aspects of the condition ranging from medical to emotional.

Our Youth Group's Mission

In addition to raising funds to increase awareness and support educational programs concerning Spina Bifida, Tehyathon’s secondary mission is to provide “Tenderness Totes” containing basic necessities to sustain life for the homeless or anyone in need.

These pre-assembled tote bags contain food, water, and toiletries and are designed to be stored in a vehicle and given to a person in need at a moment’s notice.

Each tote will also contain an inspirational message of hope for the recipient that was created by a Tehyathon Youth Group member, a friend of Tehyathon, or a Spina Bifida patient. In addition, contact and resource information for shelters and community service organizations will be printed on the back of each card. These "Tote Notes" make our survival packs unique and make each recipient feel special.

Funds raised by Tehyathon will be used to purchase contents for each tote, although donations of the actual contents are also very much appreciated.
