McKenzie’s Story

On August 17th, 2010, McKenzie passed away from a rare and sudden illness at the age of 15. Her family was overwhelmed as more than 1,800 people attended her funeral to celebrate her beautiful life. Just one month later, her high school decided to retire her softball jersey number “as a lasting tribute to her kindness, spirit, talent, and faith.”

McKenzie had always fostered a deep passion for helping others, and wanted people to feel loved and cared for. The McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation was created to embrace this passion of hers and honor her life by helping young people realize their full potential. Read More
