Team Kevin Beach

This general fund has been established for Kevin Beach's family. Donations of any amount in honor of Kevin's memory are appreciated. We will gift the proceeds from this fundraising effort to the Beach Family directly at the celebration of Kevin's life in June.

The Team Kevin movement began with one man - Kevin Curtis Beach. His life has inspired hundreds of people.

Kevin Curtis Beach, 33, of Lenexa, KS passed away Saturday, March 8, 2014 surrounded by his loving family. He left this world with strength, optimism, and love, much like he lived his life. He was quick to laugh, loved all, nonjudgmental, and forgave readily "“ even when it wasn't asked "“ optimistic and generous with a wonderful smile. He leaves behind his loving parents, Barry and Jean Beach; big sister, Stacie Keil and husband Joshua; nieces, Magnolia, Lucy, and Daisy; little sister, Carrie Beach; grandmother Joan Beach, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Kevin was born June 11, 1980 to Barry and Jean Beach in Rochester, New York. He graduated from Bellevue East High School in 1999 and attended Bellevue West High School as well. Shortly after his 21st birthday, Kevin was involved in an accident that left Kevin a quadriplegic. He turned his tragedy into a positive by becoming a motivational speaker for safety awareness throughout the greater Kansas City area. Kevin was a huge advocate for prevention of spinal cord and traumatic brain injury.

Wristbands, t-shirts and hoodies were generously created by members of Team Kevin and are sent as a thank you for contributing to this fund. We have been fortunate enough to have a variety of designs submitted to help with fundraising. If you have any questions about the different designs, please contact us through the "have a question" link. :)

THANK YOU FOR BEING A MEMBER OF #TEAMKEVIN.
