One year ago Kelley Stage Clayton, a mother, sister, daughter and friend, was murdered in her own home. Family and friends started the "Kindness for Kelley" initiative, which has blossomed into other projects - including "Justice for Kelley" which is building strength in Kelley's memory and aims at getting justice on her behalf. Kelley's sister, Kimberly Stage Bourgeois and her family, are raising Kelley's young children and doing everything they can to provide a loving and happy home for them.
We are launching Running for Kelley to continue to raise money to continue to cover expenses associated with providing the best life possible for Kelley's children. Money can never replace a mother's love and care, but everyone knows that raising kids isn't easy or without expense, so we encourage you to donate. As runners, we are using Kelley's memory as inspiration in our training for the Wineglass Marathon (26.2 miles from Bath to Corning, New York and a half marathon on October 2nd). We encourage you to attend this fun event.
You can "run with us" by being a part of the journey. Without breaking a sweat, be a:
- "Marathoner" and donate $26.20 = $1 per 26.2 miles
- "Half-Marathoner" and donate $13.10 = $1 per 13.1 miles
- "Team Member" and donate any amount of your choice.
All funds (minus any fees to this crowdfunding platform) will go to an already-existing trust in the children's name. To donate online, please click on the donate icon. Please do not bring cash to the event. This website will stay active through October 31, 2016.
