Reflecting on the Legacy Gabriel and Katie-Jay

Dear iACT Community,

As we mark the one year anniversary of the passing of our founder Gariel Stauring and Executive Director Katie-Jay Scott, this message from Gabriel reverberates in my mind:

“You don’t run out of love. Keep giving.”

The truth is these two never ran out of love, and their determination to keep giving it rippled out into the world around them. Their love can be seen from the strength of the volunteer community they built first in California’s South Bay to the commitment of the wonderful soccer coaches running the Refugees United Soccer Academy in eastern Chad. It’s amazing to think how iACT began with just a tug on Gabriel’s heart and we’re now a community of people across four continents.
