A GoFundMe has been set up to support the family of the woman killed in the Ladysmith hit-and-run on August 29.
35-year-old Katie Blogg of Ladysmith lost her life in a crash on the Trans Canada Highway when a Ford F150 crossed the centre median and collided with her sport-utility vehicle.
Blogg leaves behind her husband, Trevor Blogg, and their two children; Harrison and Grace.
Several members of the Ladysmith community have expressed a desire to support the family. The GoFundMe was set up at Trevor’s request to centralize that support.
Funds raised will go toward the future education of the Blogg children, and a memorial service for Katie.
The GoFundMe was set up on Monday, August 31 with a goal of $15,000. That goal was quickly eclipsed, and a new goal of $30,000 was set. As of 4:25 p.m. on September 1, $85,891 has been raised.
“This is a horrific situation and the support of and for the family has been incredible,” Ladysmith Mayor Aaron Stone said. “Let us continue to show how our community comes together for those who need us most.”
