A Memorial for Tim Vorenkamp

With deep sadness and a heavy heart, we write to inform you that Tim Vorenkamp, a dear friend of GameChanger Charity, has passed away after a long battle with Synovial Sarcoma.

Tim was an incredible young man, son, brother, student-athlete, friend and role model. We are honored and blessed to have known Tim Vorenkamp – a young man who certainly maximized the time he was given, earned a college scholarship to Cal Berkeley for Volleyball, started his own nonprofit ‘Live For Others Foundation’ and had countless other memories that will forever serve as his legacy.

Tim Vorenkamp was awarded the GameChanger IMPACT Player of the Year Award in 2013 – our charity’s highest honor, bestowed upon the individual who most deeply embodies our mission to spread joy, be kind & humbly serve children suffering from life-threatening illnesses.

Our hearts, thoughts & prayers go out Tim’s father Pieter (GameChanger Board Member), mother Petra and brother Patrick.

With love,
The GameChanger Charity Team
