Christopher Hayes Memorial Fund

On October 4, 2018, our dear friend Christopher Hayes passed away in an tragic accident. We are mourning his sudden and unexpected passing. Chris was a devoted and loving husband, brother, son-in-law, friend and colleague. He was passionate about practicing law and providing a voice for those who felt silenced or mistreated in the workplace. He was dedicated to helping others and was training to compete in a 620-mile bike ride to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation at the end of this month. 

Chris is survived by his wife Melissa, sisters Kyle and Kim, and brother Rick and their families. Please consider donating to this GoFundMe to help raise money for expenses the family will incur. If you’d like a portion of your donation to help Chris reach his fundraising goal and “finish his ride” for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, please indicate that in the comments below. Melissa will be making a bulk donation on his behalf. 

Chris, we love you and you will be dearly missed by so many.
