Lacy Pittman, age 17, died on September 6, 2005 in
a tragic car accident. She left behind many broken hearts
and the awareness of what an angel she had been.
She had just begun her senior year in high school, while
staying busy working and serving as a YMCA coach for her
little brother's soccer team. As the oldest of one sister
and seven brothers, Lacy was intelligent and athletic, busy
working, focusing on poetry, and playing the drums.
The YMCA of Lincoln, Nebraska, where she spent many years in
soccer, has decided to honor Lacy by renaming an annual
soccer tournament The Lacy Pittman Memorial Soccer
Tournament, the first annual to be held in the fall of 2006.
In order to gather funds for the sponsorship, Lacy's family
is raising $800, which is necessary to pay for all of the
medals that participants will win. $130 has been raised/pledged so
far through this website, and we encourage others to do what
they can to support a cause that Lacy would have loved.
