JV Binkley Memorial Fund

UPDATE: THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED SO FAR! WENDY IS BEYOND GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT.  SENDING LOVE!

Here is an updated story: https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/family-pleads-for-answers-after-father-of-2-killed-in-troy-hit-and-run



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wendy Binkley is one of the most amazing and caring teachers at Adventure Center. She has worked for many years nurturing, protecting, and loving the children of so many families. Now it is our turn to care for Wendy and her beautiful family.

Wendy is a doting wife and mother - her two kids, Bella and Thai, are so lucky to have her as their mom. On Friday morning, May 24th, Wendy, Bella, and Thai's world was turned upside down. Their beloved husband/father, JV, was killed in a tragic hit and run accident. The family, their friends, and anyone who knows them are in shock.

All Wendy has asked for are donations towards Bella and Thai's college funds. 

Please consider donating to this VERY worthy cause. Wendy is a beautiful soul, and her children are amazing kids. They all deserve the world during this difficult time in their lives. Any amount will help, and will help to relieve the stress of making sure the kids education is not interrupted. Bella is set to return to Alma College in the fall as a Junior. All JV would have wanted is to make sure his family is taken care of, he was the best father and such a caring and supportive husband.

From JV's obituary:

JV was a proud and dedicated father, always making himself available for sporting events that filled the weekends with soccer and baseball travel. He enjoyed playing video games with his kids and lived his life for his family.

As Patricia Yiu so beautifully stated, “May we all be a little bit more like JV, who lived his life in joy and kindness, with a smile that lighted up the room.”

Sending so much love to Wendy, Bella, Thai and their whole entire family during this time and always!

Love from,
YOUR ADVENTURE CENTER FAMILY & FRIENDS NEAR AND FAR
