Ways to Pay It Forward & Honor Erin

My sister, Erin, lived with passion, commitment, and adventure. She was a healthy, 33-year-old marathon running woman with the biggest smile and a spunky spirit. She was one of a kind. She poured her sweet, intelligent, and creative soul into everything she did from getting her Brame Middle School students to learn to love science, to building a cross country team of runners, to bringing her recycling items from her Louisiana town which did not recycle to her South Carolina hometown which did, to her dedication to complete marathons in every state before her 50th birthday. No one would have ever been prepared for or expected that on March 7th when she went out for one of her evening runs, she collapsed and never woke up. The unfathomable happened on March 13th when she passed away. We are left with our great memories and our desire to honor Erin and her love of life in the best way possible. Boy, did my sister love life and live it to the fullest! If you would like to help honor my sister, celebrate her life, and continue her legacy, please help us to pay it forward for Erin with all the things she loved. Donations to honor Erin will go to a college scholarship fund to help deserving students of Brame Middle School and to donations for environmental causes. Her spirit will live on and her positive impact on so many people will continue to change this world to be a better place. My sister would want us to pay it forward and to shine her light in this darkness. Thank you for loving my sister as she loved you!
