In Remembrance of Chris Oosterhuis

Classmates and Friends, 

On Friday, June 29, 2018, Christopher Martin Oosterhuis, husband, father, son, brother, and uncle collapsed while running and passed away suddenly.  

News of Chris's untimely passing sent a terrible shock through all those who knew and loved him. Recently several members of Chris's graduating class at the Landon School have come together to discuss a way to honor his legacy. 

After learning that Chris's family has started the Oosterhealth Charitable Foundation in his honor (dedicated to research on health, exercise, and nutrition), we believe there is no better way to remember our brother than to support the fundraising efforts for this new charity. 

We truly hope that you'll take a moment to donate. The goal has been set to mirror our class year but, with your help, we can surpass it. 

Lastly, there is a memorial service scheduled in Boston later this month. To learn more details about the service and the life and legacy of Christopher Martin Oosterhuis, please visit the obituary originally published in the Washington Post on July 10, 2018:
