LIGHTING A PATH TO A WORLD WITHOUT BARRIERS
OLIVIA BLOOMFIELD FOUNDATION
Founded to carry on the light and legacy Olivia so fiercely championed.
Born with congenital muscular dystrophy, Olivia made it her superpower. In her 10 years, she accomplished a lifetime of work and service, locally, nationally and globally. She was a fearless and tireless advocate for accessibility and inclusion, championing inclusive playgrounds throughout Kansas City and beyond, because, as she pointed out, “Everybody deserves a chance to play."
Widely known and respected for her activism and leadership around inclusivity, Olivia was the youngest recipient ever to receive the KC Independent’s Rising Stars award in 2022 for her work in the community and school district. She was also named the 2021 Champion of a global urban playground design competition that focused on inclusivity for which her work inspired.
Olivia's legacy and light will live forever in our hearts. The foundation will carry her torch by funding charities and community projects dedicated to improving the lives of those with disabilities and furthering medical research devoted to congenital muscular dystrophy.
"WE ARE ALL BORN WITH A DIVINE FIRE IN US. OUR EFFORTS SHOULD BE TO GIVE WINGS TO THIS FIRE AND FILL THE WORLD WITH THE GLOW OF ITS GOODNESS."
Wings of Fire, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
