Project 4031 has named Kendall Riddell as executive director. Project 4031’s mission is to promote peace through physical, emotional and spiritual support for terminally ill patients and their families.
Riddell grew up in Huntington Beach, California, and came to Fort Worth to attend Texas Christian University, where she met her husband, Adam, the organization said in a news release.
Riddell has dedicated both her professional and personal efforts to improving Fort Worth, the release said. She raises critically needed funds to support terminally ill children and their families. She is also a volunteer with the Junior League of Fort Worth and plays competitive adult kickball.
“The mission of Project 4031 truly touched my heart,” explained Riddell. “This was the chance of a lifetime that I could not pass up.”
The organization takes its name from the Old Testament verse Isaiah 40:31: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
“We knew right away that Kendall would fit in perfectly with our team. Her goals and her heart align with ours,” said co-founder Kristina Robertson.
The organization said in the release that it “fulfills end-of-life dreams no matter what age a patient is and offers financial assistance to help families with basic needs. As part of a global initiative, Project 4031 also provides gently used medical equipment to international hospice and palliative care facilities to better the end-of-life journeys for those around the world.”
