Keyes’ parents say the support from the community is overwhelming.

“We don’t choose tragedy but we can choose our response. This community response is humbling. All I can say thank you,” father John-Michael Keyes said.

The event raises money for the “I Luv U Guys” Foundation. Those were the final words that Keyes texted before she died. The foundation pushes for student and school safety.
