The Clay Soper Memorial Fund (CSMF) seeks to educate youth about Clay’s death and how to avoid such a tragic accident as well as, promote his passion for connecting youth from different cultures and backgrounds and help to promote acceptance, kindness, and understanding of differences.
CSMF will educate, engage and empower our children and yours with two important initiatives:
“IF THEY HAD KNOWN” A documentary that shares the story of Clay Soper’s tragic, accidental death from mixing prescription drugs and alcohol. By sharing Clay’s story, we hope to prevent our tragedy from becoming yours.
CLAY CONNECTIONS A program connecting inner-city and suburban middle school students to foster an appreciation for people from different cultures and backgrounds and to promote acceptance, kindness, and understanding of differences.
CSMF is strengthened and supported by several events including:
Clay Soper Memorial Weekend Championship (ski race)
WVBBTS Clay Bike Ride
ABAY CLAY DAY
