Race Family Memorial Fund

$9,307 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 116 people in 14 months
Created March 25, 2018
The Race family needs your help.

Chris was Jacalyn's right hand at home and in their business. 

He was a great husband, and an amazing daddy to their 5 boys. "Step" family never was mentioned, as he treated all his boys equally in love and attention. He was their hero, thier strength and their protector until the very end.

He was tragically taken from them all by unimaginable means. 

Now, Jacalyn and the family needs our help as they begins to rebuild their lives, and she continues to run her business. 

Please consider donating today.

All monies given to this fund are given of free will, with no expectation of a return.

The work and stress of laying Chris to rest has been done. Life is continuing on, and a “new normal” is being established.
Grief coming in as crashing waves right now, will hopefully soon begin to spread apart as the healing begins.
Thank you to all who have already given so freely and so selflessly!
Now, more than ever, is when this family will need our help.
We are hoping to raise enough for them get a down payment to buy the home they are in. Something they were working towards and looking forward to doing as a family.
Let’s help them make this a reality!

Who was Chris Race? Here is an amazing tribute. Unfortunately I can not find a way to post the video!

Chris Race influenced my entire life; we grew up together, shared ideas and friends, supported each other, cried together, and shared 35 years of memories, give or take. I'm not sure I could pin down just one significant way in which he changed me. With me, he shared all his 'obsessions,' and so he changed the way I looked at the world more than once. When he studied religion, he gave me perspective on faith. When he endeavored to teach, he taught me how to understand others I didn't enjoy, and accept people for who they are. When he studied coffee, he poured me the best cup of my life and told me everything about it, and changed how I did that, too. But more than any of that, no matter what he was studying, he told _me_ about it, and we got to talk and think together, and that, most of all, changed me. I'm posting a clip from a video Chris did about 6 years ago, which led me to write this and share it.

What did Chris influence in your life?
