PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — The family of a girl who was killed in a Florida school shooting has set up a fund to support research for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
The ALS Association announced The Carmen Schentrup ALS Research Fund
Schentrup was a National Merit Finalist who was accepted into the University of Florida Honors Program and as a University of Washington Purple and Gold Scholar. She planned to begin college in the fall.
Schentrup’s parents say she was determined to become a medical researcher, specifically so she could find a cure for ALS.
The family established the fund with $5,628.84, Schentrup’s entire life savings. The ALS Association says its goal is to grow the fund to more than $50,000.
