This fund has been created for Maggie Montoya and her four pharmacy coworkers at King Soopers who survived the mass shooting on March 22, 2021. Many in the running community have reached out wanting to help Maggie. As many of you know, she is a national class athlete, I am part of her team (@JoshCox on social media).
I reached out to her and she was so thankful for the support but wanted the fund to benefit all five in the pharmacy that day (two pharmacists and three pharmacy technicians).
100% of all funds collected will go to these survivors to aid in their recovery, therapy, self-care, and time away from work. We are all grieving with them and these funds will help them navigate the long journey ahead.Josh Cox
What more needs to be said? I don’t know Maggie, but being a runner I follow her and a few other pro runner folk, and I see her training, her racing, etc. And now this… she was working, at her day job, and… more violence in America.
To think, also, that a Gofundme is even needed. To offset the cost of time away from work, for therapy, for take out, just to survive.
It reminds me of the insurrection. The tales of staffers and Senators who barricaded themselves in offices.
This is America, violent, dark, and scary.
