Ryan's Memorial Fund was established in loving memory of Ryan, who was killed when the car he was riding in as a passenger crashed in Hebron, CT. Ryan's Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed by Ryan's family whose mission is to raise and allocate funds and other resources to meet the public interest, health, safety, education and human service needs of the community. Its projects have included providing first responders/fire departments with pet respirator kits and training to save family pets in emergency situations, partnering annually with a tree farm to provide free Christmas trees to needy families, providing free beach passes to families in Ryan's home town, raising awareness regarding safe teen driving, renovating a courtyard at CHS, donating to safe graduation initiatives, food banks, fuel banks, and providing the kick-off donation for a town defibrillator.
