The Friends of Rachel is a challenge in honor of Rachel Joy Scott who was one of the 13 victims killed at Columbine High School shooting in 1999. Her family started (to) the challenge for people to become more aware & compassionate to others and put an end to bullying. They believed if one person could make a difference, it would start a chain reaction.  We share the same belief.
