Karina Vetrano Memorial Reward Fund

$295,740 of $400,000 goal

Raised by 4,758 people in 21 months
This GoFundMe page is being established in the name of Karina Vetrano. A beautiful. vivacious 30-year-old woman who was brutally murdered on the night of August 2nd when she went out for her nightly jog only blocks from her home in Howard Beach.

We are a committee of 5 people who represent the Howard Beach community, and we are joined by Karina’s parents, Cathy and Phil, in establishing this page. The money that we seek to raise here is to supplement the $20,000 reward currently offered by the NYPD. While we greatly appreciate the help of the police, Howard Beach is a community not known for sitting back while other people work on our behalf. Karina has become the “daughter” of the entire community and we are committed to seeing justice served in her memory.

We need your help in bringing this vicious animal to face the most sever punishment allowable by law.

Every dollar from you will help to bring her family and our community one step closer to the only thing that can help now and that is an arrest and conviction.

These funds are the only thing that we feel we can do to encourage anyone with information to come forward with something that will led to an arrest. We hope and pray that you will read this and recognize that an event like this is universal. It could happen to your daughter, your sister, your mother.

At a time like this we know that our fellow human beings will be happy to join in this quest to bring the only sense of peace possible to a family ripped apart by this horrendous act.

Please help us bring Karina’s killer to justice.

Hell everyone.
Just another reminder about Karina’s event at Molloy this year. It’s going to be on June 23 from 11am to 11 pm. There will be a mass first at 930 am.
This year the theme is going to a little different than last yr. it’s going to be festive, a celebration of my baby’s life.
There is going to be a children’s run and for all us runners out there a 5 k is scheduled for 3 pm.
I’m asking everyone yes everyone to come. There will be food all day , supplied by Gino’s pizza and Brothers Ravioli in Howard Beach. Our goal , my goal is to raise enough for another scholarship for an additional female.
So please go to Archbishop Molloy’s website and register. There’s no fee involved, we are just asking for donations directly to the Karina Vetrano memorial Scholarship.
Again please show and enjoy.

Good news today.
By now you have heard that the golden gate killer , who killed at least 12, rapped 49 over the last 45 yrs has been caught. How was he caught after eluding police for almost50 yrs. I'll tell you. He was caught using Familial DNA testing . Yep Karinas law. So tell me now how it violates criminals , killers rights. They have no rights . And very soon NY will solve a cold case using my baby's law . It's a good day for justice. ACLU Suck on this.

I need to post this again. Were on a roll ,gotta keep it going. Molloy will make great adults out of children. We need more Molloy people out there.

Hello everyone and to everyone have a blessed day. The 2nd annual walk/relay for life to honor my baby will be held this yr at Molloy on June 23. Last years event went so well with over $60,000.00 raised for Karina’s scholarships at Molloy. We hope to do as well this yr and be able to extend the amount given to an incoming freshman girl.
Again I will be offering both the purple running shirts and the karina memorial foundation shirts to all that donate $50.00 or more. . And again all money raised will go directly to Molloy for Karina’s scholarships.
On another note , my nephew Bobby , brother in law Bob and myself have registered to run in the NY City triathlon this July. We are competing as a team with each of us performing in a different event.
I would like to get sponsorships with the proceeds going to Molloy. If someone out there knows how I can go about this , please give me some advice.
Thanks.
Phil

Isaiah 66:13 ... As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you. (God likens himself to a mother, bringing to mind the incredible comforting ability of a mother) ------------------------------------------------ Romans 8:38 ... And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. ♡☆♡
