Our foundation is indebted to the generous sponsorships, and donations given since 2006.
We thank the many supporters who have attended our foundation events since March of 2006, when we had the first walk in memory of Elisa. Since then, we have changed it to a memorial walk for families that have lost a child. Families have an opportunity to come together and raise money, not only for our foundation, but for a charity or scholarship fund in memory of their beloved child.
The money raised throughout the years has helped several young students pursue their dreams and goals with college scholarships.
Others have grown spiritually through the Life Teen Ministry which prepares young teens for the sacrament of Confirmation. Elisa was a member of Life Teen, and we are proud to donate to this ministry each year as they organize two powerful retreats and share the Good News of God’s love through catechism, skits, and community service.
Footprints Forever On Our Hearts Support Group was established in 2009, and meets once a month to minister to parents who have lost a child.
Further more, the donations and sponsorship money is used is to maintain the road where the accident happened. Through the program, Tucson, Clean and Beautiful, our foundation adopted the road. Family and friends maintain the quarter mile road once a month.
