    live on through The Foundation’s mission. They want to provide
    financial support to families struggling with similar challenges and
    misfortunes.100% of all donations will go directly to helping improve
    the lives of these families. In addition, The Foundation will fund high
    school scholarships for Middletown High School Students in Greg’s
    memory. The outpouring of love Greg and his family received from the

    way, his parents, and family can pay it forward and help other families.
