The Kristy LeMond Memorial Fund was established shortly after Kristy’s passing. The intention of the Fund was to be a temporary account to hold donations for the Tanzanian Children’s Fund, Children of the Nations, and English Opens Doors and other worthy causes. Thanks to the generous contributions of so many people, the Fund grew to $28,000! The challenge for us as a family has been establishing the best way to honor Kristy and continue her legacy through these organizations as well as other initiatives. The following is an update of what has happened thus far.

 

  • ​​$12,000 granted to Tanzanian Children's Fund to renovate a classroom at Oldeani Secondary School

  • $3,000 granted to Tanzanian Children's Fund to start The Kristy LeMond Fund Scholarship for Young Women

  • $3,085 to purchase and ship 15 Nexus 7 Tablets as well as 200 Bananagrams (one for each classroom donated by Bananagrams) for English Opens Doors Program in Chile.

  • $2,000 to Sudden Impact Volleyball Club for the Kristy LeMond Impact Scholarship

  • $2,000 granted to University of Washington Kristy LeMond Endowed Memorial Student Support Fund

  • $1,000 to the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation

Thank you for your generous support!! You may continue to support the two scholarships by donating directly on their websites. More information about them in on this site.
