CMAK (Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski) Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation is a 501(C)(3) organization. Contributions to the foundation are tax deductible.
Thank you for visiting our website to honor Chase Kowalski who we sadly lost in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy in Newtown, CT. Chase was an amazing son, brother and grandson who's heart was only filled with love for all the people he touched. He competed and won his first triathlon at six and often ran in local road races.
Chase’s passion for athletics has inspired a Race4Chase community competing in his honor and CMAK’s pursuit of programs to support youth and strengthen families through health and wellness programs. Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon Program, Chase’s Place Family Wellness Center and Pre-school scholarships will help fulfill our mission while preserving Chase’s memory.
Join our community, get involved and help reach our goal to spread Chase’s love. Together we will turn this tragedy into triumph through acts of compassion, courage and love!
