Please everyone donate to the Ben Curry fund and wear the T shirts on the 8 th of every month ( the day Ben drowned). Information on ordering can be found on Karen Curry’s Facebook page. We need to keep his memory alive and to keep the truth surrounding the circumstances of his death in the public eye.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
