We are a 501(c)(3) organization. We exist and are motivated each day by honoring the memory of Tyler Joseph Williams.
Born to Chris and Crystal Williams of Monrovia, IN, Tyler was an active 6 year old filled with lots of spirit. Tyler loved to play baseball, play soccer, and found joy learning in school. He always had a smile on his face and was quick to give a hug to someone who needed it. On September 6, 2013, Tyler came home from school sick. Everyone believed that Tyler had a typical stomach virus. Unfortunately, it turned out that Tyler had an infection in his blood and brain that was extremely aggressive. The doctors and nurses were unable to cure Tyler.
Tyler passed away one week after coming home sick from school on September 12, 2013.
The loss of Tyler was shared by the whole community. The organization formed with the idea to honor Tyler's memory through building a playground in his name. After several years of hosting an annual golf outing to raise money and generous support of other donations, the financial goal was finally reached and the playground is being built spring of 2019. When Tyler was not playing on his own ball team, he spent countless hours at the Monrovia baseball fields during his sister's ball games and practices where he loved to play with the other children. With that said, it is fitting that the playground is being built between baseball diamonds 3 & 4.
Tyler is survived by his father, Chris, mother, Crystal, and two sisters, Emma and Claire. Tyler continues to be missed every day but his family finds strength in knowing that they can make an impact in the lives of other children in their community. The organization will continue to raise funds to allocate towards new community-enhancing initiatives including scholarships, school lunch assistance, support of youth athletics, and educational programs.
