About the Little Giant's Foundation

Gretna resident Emily Koesters was diagnosed with Schimke Immunoosseous Dysplasia - a complicated medical term for one of the rarest forms of Dwarfism. Unlike most dwarfs you've seen, Emily is proportioned and stands 41 inches tall. Her condition is so rare that Emily is only one of four others in the United States who have been diagnosed with Schimke, and one of only 45 across the world. It's believed that many more children may have Schimke but the journey to a diagnosis can take years and most lose their battle from the symptoms of kidney failure or stroke before they've been accurately diagnosed. Emily already has received her father's kidney and has survived stage 3 cancer.

Little Giants Foundation was formed to assist with the $3.5 million dollars needed to complete the research and testing towards finding a cure for this disease.

Little Giants Foundation is a Designated Fund of Gretna Community Foundation, an Affiliated Fund of the Midlands Community Foundation, a Nebraska 501(c)(3) Non Profit Corporation, whose tax ID is 51-0191738. Midlands Community Foundation is a public charity and operates under sections 509 (a) (1) and 170 (b) (1) (A) (vi) of the Code. Any amount donated greater than the fair market value may be considered a charitable donation. You are encouraged to consult your own tax professionals for tax advice to determine if this qualifies as a charitable contribution.

The Fun Run committee would like to personally thank you for your interest and support and hope that you join in on the fight!! Together, we can do something extraordinary.
