Rally For Ron

Life & Legacy

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  

Our mission is to offer one time financial assistance to families in our community with young children who have suddenly lost a parent.  We understand that the heartache these families are experiencing will never go away but if we can reduce their worries about how to pay a couple bills then that will allow them time to mourn as a family.  Ron loved family above all else and we know he would have been honored to be a part of a cause that promoted family.

In 2017 we established a scholarship in Ron's name for Kohl's employees and their families. 

About Ron Perez

In May 2013, Ron passed away suddenly of a stroke at the age of  41.  He was a great man who made a difference to the people around him.  Ron was a devoted husband and father and loved spending time with his children.      

Ron enjoyed playing and coaching "The Family" softball team, baseball, volleyball, and bowling.  In addition to the numerous sports he played, Ron loved comic books, playing Dungeons & Dragons with his friends, and was a fanatic about video games, Star Wars and Disney.  He was the family organizer and took care of events such as family picnics and outings.  When Ron wasn't coaching you could see him cheering on his favorite teams the St. Louis Cardinals and the Detroit Lions.

 As a manager at Kohl's, Ron headed up all the volunteer teams for nonprofit charities.  He didn't just live in the community, he gave back.  Even in death Ron went above and beyond.  He chose to donate his organs so that others can experience life and family.
