The Cassie Heppner Memorial Fund

"I'm not short. I'm fun-sized." A phrase that perfectly describes our fun-loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend, Cassie. Apart from family and friends, Cassie's greatest love was being outdoors, hiking, skiing, climbing or simply sitting around the campfire.  We would never let a tragedy define her life and the extraordinary person that she was.  Flowers for her memorial have already been taken care of, so in lieu of flowers, we have created a memorial scholarship fund with Outward Bound USA to provide opportunities for young women to reach new heights through challenging experiences in the outdoors, as Cassie did. As Cassie herself would enthusiastically say, while giving you a giant bear hug,  "LET'S DO THIS!"
