On June 26, 2007 five beautiful ladies were killed in a car crash just days after their high school graduation. The event shook the Fairport-Perinton community and the impact of the tragedy was felt across the nation. FiveAngels.org and the Fairport Angel Walk are dedicated to these beautiful ladies and their wonderful families. This year's Angel Walk is scheduled for Friday, August 1, 2014, celebrating the anniversary of the Celebration of Life held at Fairport High School. Over 4,000 people have attended the event to show their love and support for the families.
We hope that the Angel Walk continues in the spirit of the Celebration of Life and that you'll join us to support a great cause.
All proceeds from the Angel Walk will be donated to the Joey Fund. The Joey Fund was established by Principal David Paddock, following the tragic death of Fairport High School student Joey Anderson, as a way to live out community support. The fund is administered by high school administrators, along with an annual selected group of seniors, to support Fairport families in crisis. The Five Angel families believe that this connection is appropriate, to return community support which we all received at the time of the tragedy and throughout the past years.
