Parker University Receives Oklahaven Golden Heart Award

Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center, a non-profit organization that treats sick and disabled children through chiropractic care, recently honored Parker University with the Golden Heart Award as the chiropractic institution that raised the most funds during Oklahaven’s 2012 Have-a-Heart Campaign. Each year, hundreds of chiropractic offices, chiropractic institutions, and many other advocacy groups around the world join in the Have-A-Heart Campaign to raise funds to heal children through chiropractic at Oklahaven.

Oklahaven Have-A-Heart Fundraiser 2009

The Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center began in response to the needs of chronically ill children in 1962, many of whom in the early 1960s were paralyzed, in braces and wheelchair-bound. Oklahaven founders chose to provide chiropractic care through a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization. They relied on the generosity of the private sector who shared the children’s centers vision of natural drug-free healthcare and of other chiropractic colleagues to donate their services.
