Coral’s Way: Courtney’s Day of Service

Thank you to 50 amazing friends, family, and YMCA Camp Jones Gulch for attending Courtney’s Day of Service on April 14, 2013.  With tremendous hard work and teamwork, we built "Coral's Way" - a new ridge line trail dedicated to Courtney.  Oh, and we built 12 new picnic tables too!

Class of Tulane 2003 supports Environmental Law Endowment

Courtney graduated from Tulane Law School 10 years ago, and her fellow Tulaneans are truly amazing - lawyers who laissez les bons temps rouler.   It is customary for each class to commemorate its reunion by presenting a gift to the law school.  In celebration of Courtney’s life and in honor of her dedication to the protection of the environment, Class of 2003 is honoring the Courtney Harrington LeBoeuf Environmental Law Scholarship Endowment as their class gift. Courtney’s passion for Tulane and environmental law will continue through the endowment by awarding an annual scholarship to a rising third year law student who demonstrates a commitment to environmental law.  Donate directly to the scholarship.

Rain or Shine: Outdoor Education supported by Courtney’s Fund

In May 2013, Courtney’s Fund awarded YMCA Camp Jones Gulch a $2,500 grant to purchase:  

More than 4,000 5th and 6th graders, and nearly 600 high school cabin leaders attend Outdoor School each year!  Students spent five days and four nights exploring and learning in nature at Camp Jones Gulch, the San Francisco Y.M.C.A. camp located in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  Our grant supports students having a life-changing outdoor education experience rain or shine.

Breast Cancer Fund Peak Hike

Feel like a beautiful hike in Marin County?  Please join our partners at The Breast Cancer Fund!  If you start a team, reply to us with the team info and we'll include your team in the next Courtney’s Fund newsletter to help with your fundraising.  The Peak Hike is a fundraising hike benefiting the Breast Cancer Fund's work to expose and eliminate the environmental causes of the disease.

At an elevation of 2,571 feet, Mt. Tamalpais is located in the heart of Marin County, just north of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, and possesses some of the most spectacular views in the Bay Area. The 7-mile trail you'll hike includes steady ascent and descent, offering spectacular views of the ocean, lush redwood canyons, oak woodlands and chaparral hillsides.

And, lastly... you rock!

We will be able to make some extra grants in the coming years because of YOU.  We are already over $2,000 ahead of our 2013 goal.  Thank you all for making a tax-deductible donation to Courtney’s Fund to support future initiatives in environmental protection and eliminating the environmental causes of breast cancer.
