THE "CHASING DREAMS" COACH KILL FUND
On May 15, 2014 during Rise Above Seizures Day, Coach and Rebecca Kill announced a new fund to support kids with epilepsy. The Kill family donated $100,000 to start the Chasing Dreams fund, which will help fund "seizure-smart school initiatives, along with Camp Oz, a specially designed camp for epilepsy patients in Hudson, Wis." The "Chasing Dreams" Coach Kill fund will support the following programs:
"We want to get in every single school in the state of Minnesota and educate them on how to handle seizures in the schools,” Kill said via the Star Tribune. "We want to keep Camp Oz going for a long time."
According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the stated goal for the Chasing Dreams fund is $500,000.
