LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – A Woodford County family hopes to carry on the legacy of their loved one after he was killed in a car accident two years ago.

Jack Paris’ family created the #loveBIG Foundation in 2017 to help people like he did. Jack’s sister, Abigail Paris, says her family had no idea the impact he had made on so many people.

“We really discovered that there was a lot of good that he was doing in the world that we just didn’t know about before. He was one of the first people that saw someone in need and stepped into action, said Paris.”

Saturday’s softball game between the Lexington Christian Academy and Paris High School had a message behind it. Paris’ other sister is a Junior at LCA and plays on the softball team. All the proceeds from the game will go to foundation.

“From helping to fundraise for graduation caps and robes to helping raise money for socks and sweatshirts during the cold and the winter, all the way to helping students with their applications for jobs or for school,” said Paris.

The #loveBIG Foundation  aims to educate and advocate for the youth.
