Keegan’s Krew

Keegan managed to touch the lives of countless people. He was a smart, compassionate, funny, brave and creative child with an old soul. Even people who didn’t know him as a person were left with a smile when he held the door open for them as he tipped his signature fedora. Keegan loved playing video games and reading, and had dreams of becoming both a famous Youtuber and an author. He loved super heroes and was working on his own comic book and super hero character, Night Strike. He emulated super heroes in his daily life as he tried to defend his fellow classmates who were victims of bullying. He even started an anti-bullying club at school. His many talents included being an animal whisperer and the self-proclaimed “Greatest Sandwich Maker in the World.” To say he had personality is an understatement! He performed enthusiastically in school plays as both a cow and a dog, and managed to steal the show with no lines at all! Keegan was a world traveler, always ready for whatever adventure his family wanted to go on, but his time in Rome was his favorite. He hoped to move there one day after graduating from Bradley University like his mom. Keegan managed to touch the lives of countless people.

Keegan was a world traveler, always ready for whatever adventure his family wanted to go on, but his time in Rome was his favorite. He hoped to move there one day after graduating from Bradley University like his mom. It was the trip to Rome that he got his first fedora, and it was like his super hero power the moment he put it on. He relished in the smiles it brought most, and secretly hid the pain of the taunting that came from others. He began advocating for other kids like him, bullied for being unique, while silently suffering himself. He began a Bully Patrol, and spent recesses giving classmates a safe place to be themselves without fear of bullies. Sadly, Keegan ended his life at only 11 years old to escape his own pain. His family immediate banded together with friends and members of the community to continue his goal of Bully Patrol, and to share Keegan’s story to anyone who would listen. Keegan’s mom Kelly has spoken to hundreds of students at area schools about the effects of bullying. Keegan’s Krew has a long term goal of providing a safe haven for all, bullies or the bullied. In the meantime, they do pop up events to connect with community children, giving them an opportunity to express their feelings in a safe and accepting environment. This year, Keegan’s Krew will help their followers earn a Keegan’s Krew patch upon successful completion of 11 acts of Kindness.
