Mission Statement

Kent Rose was driven to make an impact on the lives of kids. He spent countless hours planning events to accommodate kids. He drove up and down the back roads and hollers of Eastern Kentucky to make sure kids were aware of his events. He also organized many humanitarian efforts along the way. At the time of his passing from Lung Cancer in 2016, he was on a mission to make a difference. The Kent Rose Foundation is committed to fulfilling his vision.
