The spirit of building the character of Vandalia-Butler youth is the impetus for the Blake LaForce Memorial Fund, a VISIONS Endowment Fund, of the Vandalia and Dayton Foundations. The LaForce family understands the need for “educating the whole child”. Student athletes not only learn a strong work ethic and determination, but also how to work together, as a team, to attain one common goal. Students who participate in athletics at any level learn leadership skills, how to set and reach goals, and a sense of healthy competition.
Community support is necessary to provide the best for these student athletes. Contributions to the Blake LaForce #41 Memorial Fund will ensure not only that Blake’s legacy lives on, but the best possible opportunities are made available for our students. View our video:
