The organization was founded by Lisa and David Wargo after finding love and support from the community during their son's battle with cancer. In their efforts to pay it forward and help others who may be in similar circumstances, the organization has continued to create brighter days for children.

Through events like the Super Hero 5k and with help from organizations like "R" Acres of Terror, Isaac's Rays of Hope has been able to realize tremendous achievements by offering support to those in need.
