MSG Brian Tripp Scholarship Fund

$2,555 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 64 months
On April 24th 2011 Brian passed away and left this world as a physical being.  In Brian's passing many friends and family came together to share stories on how this quiet and proffessional father, son, brother and Army leader had touched thier lives in some deep and profound way.  Simply, Brian was given two hands and he chose to use them for hard work and giving his entire life.  In the wake of his passing he has left successful children, a loving family and countless loyal friends and distinguished Soldiers.
     We have all grieved and learned to heal in our own way.  We jointly chose to start this memorial fund in 2011 in his honor.  We are on the sixth year of fund raising and giving money to higher education scholarships to deserving High School Seniors at Suffield Highschool and Howell Cheney Technical High School, Brian was a 1986 graduate of Cheney Tech and later in life returned as a substitute teacher.
     This year we are looking to give scholaships in his name at both Cheney and Suffield High School in rememberance of his service and sacrifice to this country and to the Land Warrior CrossFit community.       
     Please join us at Land Warrior CrossFit on 12 March 2017 at 9a.m-12pm in our venture to raise money and honor a man who gave and gave until there was no more to give.  If you cannot attend please feel free to donate and send a message. Every dollar amount helps and is greatly appreciated.

In one week we received some amazing support from some great friends. We are well on our way to meeting our scholarship goal. The fund raising will go through memorial day. We will honor Brian and all others who have served our great nation. I challenge you all to give back a little, whether it is this fund or just spending a few minutes to thank a service member.... They have all paid a price and had to sacrifice.

Brian and I started at about the same time, at the CSMS. He was a fun loving guy. He is missed.
