We are raising money in memory of Chris Goddard for his two children, Reese and Easton Goddard.

Chris loved his children more than anything in this world and wanted nothing more but to provide for them and give them a wonderful life. Donations will be used to support their future life endeavors. Money donated will be transferred into a trust account for each.

Our family would be very appreciative for any donation that you can provide as their life has changed forever.
