Karina Vetrano Memorial Reward Fund

$296,278 of $400,000 goal

Raised by 4,770 people in 23 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.

I know it’s short notice but I need to let everyone know that this Sunday we are running the NY City triathlon.
My nephew Bobby, brother in law Bob and myself are relaying the course.
It will end in Central Park. I’d like to see you there to cheer us on. We already received almost 20 donations going directly to Molloy. Hope to see you there.
Peace.

Wow, it was a long day. But it was a fruitful day.
I don’t know what the total is yet but I can’t tell you it’s somewhere around 40 k . Not bad for 1 day. We are a little closer to offering a scholarship to another incoming freshmen girl. I’m glad so many of you supporters showed up. It was a pleasure to meet you .
I want also to give thanks to all that showed , donated and helped with Karina’s event. A special thanks to the faculty at Molloy all of you , especially , Richard, Matt, frank and AJ. And of course to my brother Robert .
Thank you all and see you again next yr.
