MRI CR has been an annual supporter of the Zach Johnson Foundation since its inception in 2010. The Zach Johnson Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Cedar Rapids children and their families lead happy, healthy lives. We accomplish our goals of improving quality of life, education, and well-being through a number of different fundraising and awareness initiatives.

Kids on Course is a nonprofit program of the Zach Johnson Foundation, in cooperation with the Cedar Rapids Community School District. Kids on Course provides tutoring, enrichment, parent engagement strategies, and health supports to put students on course to graduate college. Each child reaches his or her academic and individual potential through creative and inventive opportunities that connect students and families to the community, schools, and higher learning.

The MRI Network Charitable Foundation was founded in 2007 by a dedicated group of MRI Network franchise owners as a vehicle for the MRI Network community to assist children in need. The Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds through golf tournaments, auctions, celebrity guests, and participating in 5k and half-marathons.

While the original and continued beneficiary is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Foundation also created the MRINetwork Disaster Relief Fund to assist those in the Network that experience significant financial setbacks due to natural disasters. The Foundation has also made significant donations to other charities, such as Duke Children’s Hospital and Hunter’s Hope Foundation founded by Jim and Jill Kelly.

MRI Cedar Rapids is proud to be an annual sponsor of the Carey Classic Golf Tournament, a fundraiser in memory of Justin Carey. All proceeds directly benefit Justin Carey’s daughter through a college savings fund.
