THE STORY:

Tiffany Jenks was a 1500m state champion runner, scientist, and friend of many, who was murdered for no known reason at Blue Lake Park, Troutdale, OR on October 8, 2013. 

The purpose of this fund is to honor her memory by providing an education to one or more children in Northern Uganda impacted by war in that region, with an emphasis on those who show interest in or have potential as distance runners.



There are a number of reasons why this cause would resonate deeply with Tiffany, who herself wanted to go to Uganda after hearing about the needs there. The combination of education, running, and service to improve lives in the developing world would have tugged on her heart, as many would attest.



At the present moment, tuition, room, board, and post-war trauma counseling for one child can be provided at the rate of $50/month ($600/year). Tiffany had a special interest for helping children in need and hoped at some point to get involved herself in such a cause. As her friends and survivors we can carry forth Tiffany's hopes and help one children at a time, in Tiffany's honor, at very nominal cost.



Please contribute anything you can. Our Facebook page now has more than 300 supports. At that level, a mere $2 a year average per person, per year, is all that is needed to give one child a future. For 300 annual gifts of $10, we can raise it to five children. Sometimes, love really is inexpensive.
