The Vermont Game Wardens Association is seeking your generosity to help the family of a fellow Vermont Game Warden.  Jason Gravelle has been a valued member of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Law Enforcement Division since 2011.  Unfortunately, Jason's wife Ashley has been struggling to beat a long battle with breast cancer.  Despite four rounds of chemotherapy, the cancer has spread and Ashley is currently unable to work.  Jason has had to take time off of work to help Ashley and take care of their two young children.

In addition to our efforts to raise money for the Gravelle family, the organizers of the 5 and Dime race at Mount Ascutney were gracious enough to donate 50% of the registration fees to the Gravelle family.  The race will be held on June 21, 2014 and includes a 5K and a 10K race.  There will also be a barbeque after the race for $10 per person hosted by the Vermont Game Wardens Association.  The barbeque will include two pigs, hot dogs, hamburgers, sodas, and sides.  100% of the proceeds from the barbeque will go directly to the Gravelle family.  

You may register for the race and find more information about the race at the link below:

Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the Gravelle family to offset living expenses.  Any donation, no matter how small, would be of great help. Even if you can't contribute, please share and pass along the link to others. Any left over money will be put into a college fund for their two children.  Please help the Vermont Game Wardens Association give back to one of its own!

A message from the Gravelle Family:

As we reflect back on 2014, with so many highs and lows we wanted to say thank you. We wish we had the time to contact each one of you individually and thank you personally for what you did for our family.

This roller coaster ride would have been much more difficult without the support of friends and family (including our extended Warden family). We are still touched by the generosity of everyone, including people we never met. I hope that if and when the time comes we will be able to pay it forward.

Sadie and Chase transitioned well back into school and are enjoying time with friends and are active playing hockey. Although we miss Ashley, we are surrounded by pictures, laugh at her stories and continue to feel her positive energy.

Again, we just wanted to wish you and your families a healthy 2015 and hope our paths cross again soon.

Our best to you,
Jason, Sadie and Chase

I was greatly saddened to hear of the death of Ashley. She was a dear friend to my beloved niece Laura Waller who died in 2005, to my grandniece Shaelyn, and to many others. She will leave a huge hole in a lot of lives. But now there's one more angel taking care of the people she loved.
