Ryker, Alexey & Megan Memorial Fund

$29,631 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 406 people in 4 months
Created July 6, 2018
Fundraising Team
on behalf of Sharlene Briggs
On July 3rd, 2018 our community lost 3 very dear friends; Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper. There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation that their families are all going through right now.  Our gift to them is to use the money raised to cover the costs of the Celebration of Life that will commemorate all three of these beautiful lives. 

In addition, a Legacy Fund will be established to support causes that align with the values and aspirations of Ryker, Alexey and Megan - empowering others to pursue their passions and dreams, and to live life to the fullest.  

We would also like to encourage anyone to share this Memorial Fund with friends and family.  Any size of donation is  greatly appreciated. 

Our community would love to hear anything and everything on how Ryker, Alexey and Megan may have inspired you. A story, a picture, a song, a video - use the Hashtag #HOLinspired so we can collect all of your love and thoughts in one place. 

If there's something you've been dreaming of, today is a good day to take that first step, because if you can, you should.

Thank you for all your love and support.

We are pleased to appoint Ryker Gamble's mother, Sharlene Briggs, as the administrator of funds for the Celebration of Life.
Sharlene has been working closely with all of us on the planning of the Celebration and has been an incredible pillar of strength for everyone during this difficult time. She will act as signatory to distribute funds as we receive the invoices for the Celebration.

Moving forward she will consult with us as we formulate the guidelines for the memorial fund with the many contributions we continue to receive, both financial and in kind.

Once again we would like to thank everyone who has donated so generously to commemorate Ryker, Alexey and Megan, including an overwhelming response from our networking partners in Vancouver and abroad. Together we will make a difference in the pursuit of dreams and living our best lives.
