Meet Scott

Scott J. Beigel was a teacher. A cross-country coach. A counselor. A son. A brother. An uncle. A grandchild. A nephew. A cousin. A friend. He died a hero for his actions at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where he taught geography and coached cross-country.

"A friend is someone who believes in you when you cease to believe in yourself."
- Coach Beigel

Our Inspiration

Scott J. Beigel

Scott J. Beigel was passionate about positively impacting children and lived his life serving kids through his work as a high school geography teacher, cross country coach and summer sleep-away camp counselor. He believed in fighting for the underdog and treating others the way you want to be treated. The Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund was created to carry on Scott’s legacy of helping others.

We need your help!

Help us keep Scott's memory alive and send as many at-risk, underserved children, affected by gun-violence to summer sleep-away camp, in an effort to create a better future for us all.

"Scott Beigel wasn’t a hero because he opened the door to his classroom at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that day. He was a hero because he opened doors every day."
