As a mother of a son who died of cancer and had no insurance, the costs were horrible. Not just the physical and mental costs, but the monetary cost required to support that person. We had to make many trips to the OU Medical center in order for Jason to get his treatment. Know No Boundaries was a God Send to our family. Ken ran a 100 mile race and recruited sponsors for the race. The monies raised were donated to Jason to support his treatments and trips to and from the OU Medical Center. Ken and the Know No Boundaries family not only supplied monetary support, but spiritual support with prayers and visits to Jason and our family. I cannot explain how much we appreciate the support and care that Know No Boundaries provided. I have seen several other families who have benefited from this organization and I am sure that they all appreciate the assistance that they received. This is truly a calling from God for Kenand the supporters of this organization. Without their support, it would have been a much harder road to travel.

Our son, Dillon received a specially made jogging stroller from Know No Boundaries in 2012. It allowed us to run WITH Dillon , take walks with him or just bing outside. Five years later, Dillon is still enjoying it. Thank you Ken and Know No Boundaries.

We’ve partnered with yet another GREAT COMPANY - Hobo Hammocks
Our Mission- Helping the Homeless
What do hammocks and the homeless have in common? Probably not a lot until now! Hobo Hammocks is using our portable hammocks as a way to give back. My name is Jake Andersen and I started the company 2 years ago after spending a period of time being homeless by choice. I realized the homeless have a lot of difficult challenges they face every day and I wanted to do something about it. I teamed up with The Rescue Mission of Salt Lake so we could focus our efforts on not only feeding the homeless, but also helping them find jobs and get back into an apartment. Learn more about the Rescue Mission’s program here.
