On July 21, 2020, the lives of so many were forever changed.
Rotarian Marshal Ekhoff presents a check to Christy Schultz, Founder of Sammie's Sunshine.
Sammie was in a horrific car accident. She was not wearing her seat belt and was ejected from the car. Sammie fought hard for six days. She passed away on July 27th, the day after her 15th birthday. 
Our passion as a foundation is to provide support to families who are facing similar situations. We truly want to offer them a "Raye of Hope". We plan to help support them as needed: financially, emotionally, or just by walking with them through a difficult time. Another passion is seat belt awareness. We will continue sharing Sammie's story so we can help save others through seat belt awareness. Prevention is the key. The number of fatalities due to not wearing a seatbelt is alarming.
