    Default Kierstin Eaddy Memorial Fund

    By now many of you have heard of the terrible tragedy that occurred at last Sunday's SCCA event. Kierstin Eaddy was a vibrant young girl and a veteran kart racer, and this accident has been devastating to Texas Region and the local autocrossing family.

    The Eaddy family has set up a Memorial Fun in honor of Keirstin

    The Eaddy family has requested that people wishing to make donations contribute to one of the causes that were important to Kierstin. She was a wonderful girl who did everything to the best of her ability, and win or lose came away knowing that she always gave it her all.

    One of her passions was volunteering with Spirit Horse Therapy in Corinth, TX. Spirit Horse provides all private, free therapeutic horseback riding services to children and adults in six programs: Disabilities, Children who are Victims of Abuse/Violence, At-Risk-Youth, Battered Women, and Youth After-Drug Rehab.

    Kierstin also attended the Shelton School of Dallas, a school dedicated to helping students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. The family credits the Shelton School with many of Kierstin’s successes. Shelton is a non-profit school that is always seeking additional funding for research and curriculum development.

    By donating through this Giveforward account you will be helping the Eaddy's and these causes that were so important to Kierstin.
    Thank you.

    I'd like to float the idea that entrants from the cancelled race be given the option to donate their entry fee directly rather than get refunded. I know I will be doing so, one way or another. Thanks for posting this, Iain.
