You are not a powerless speck of dust drifting around in the wind...we are, each of us, like beautiful snowflakes - unique, and born for a specific reason and purpose.

Two years ago, the Rudeen family tragically lost Rayce. Since then, they have bravely balanced their intense grief with a passionate drive to help others, in his honor. The Rayce Rudeen Foundation was born from Kevin Rudeen’s desire to highlight Rayce’s incredible spirit and to prevent other parents from feeling the pain of losing a child. The foundation has to evolved into an organization that will help countless individuals who are struggling with addiction. It is our goal to partner with and support organizations that are doing impactful work within our community. We aim to become a leader in the fight against addiction and a pioneer in the field of recovery.
