Kids turned away from school sports for lack of funds

I was saddened today when my sons school basketball team had to turn away students. The kids had not had their sports physical for the sole purpose that their parents could not afford them.
One kid is working odd jobs to try and try to raise $68 for himself to get a physical. The counselor told him he could get a physical at the local urgent care for $68. He had to tell them he only had $42 so far. I am willing to pay for his but does anyone know of a doctor that would supply services to kids while their parents may be going through a tough economy?
