When You Feel Like Quitting,Think About Why You Started.
The Andrew Range Foundation was started by Andrew's parents Bob and Traci Range and sister Taylor Hays, shortly after his passing on December 8th, 2017, just 2 days prior to his 24th birthday. The foundation was established to celebrate the life of this remarkable young man and to pay forward his positive influence.
The Andrew Range Foundation mission is to recognize and reward the qualities and traits Andrew embodied and to lighten financial educational burden by providing educational scholarship fund(s) to be granted to "Andrew's Rangers" - baseball players from Triad High School and Truman State, as well as Southern Illinois University School of Law students.
Future foundation goals are to expand to SmileTrain and St. Louis Children's Hospital Cleft Palate Clinic and to establish a program to help grieving parents and siblings cope and celebrate their loved one's lives through positive contact and events with like-minded individuals and "Basket(s) of Healing" (gifts to promote emotional and spiritual healing).
