The Boston Marathon
Mile 27 Fundraiser

   For those of you who don't know, The Sam Chase Fund is a nonprofit run by the Chase Family to honor our son and brother Sam. On April 22, 2020, Sam passed away.  He was 20 years old when he was poisoned by fentanyl. He has 3 younger siblings: Carter, Sydney, and Jackson. Our purpose is to continue to spread awareness of the dangers of fentanyl and make an impact by protecting kids and families. 


    This coming April, Sam's mom Courtney and Sam's  "Aunt" Casey are running the Boston Marathon.  They have decided to dedicate the run to SCF's mission of spreading awareness of the dangers of fentanyl.

   Our goal is to reach people far and wide, making sure this information continues to be heard. We will also honor loved ones lost to fentanyl through social media, our website, and during the run. 


   Those who feel called to donate will receive free fentanyl resource boxes for distribution in their community (available to the top 26 contributors) which include:

- Narcan 

- Test strips for college campuses 

- A video of fentanyl facts and information by Courtney and Chris, along with other family's impactful stories, appropriate for any group to learn from

- A variety of resources regarding the current data and how to talk to your kids about fentanyl


   These boxes are supportive for schools, organizations, businesses, college campuses, fraternities/sororities, doctor's offices, etc. Email us at with any questions and/or to share your loved one with us. We want to hear all about them. 

ALL donations will be a 50/50 split with Song for Charlie and Sam Chase Fund. We are so grateful for everything Song For Charlie does.


Fundraising Goal

  To participate as a Mile 27 sponsor, you may donate any amount that you feel called to do so. All amounts are appreciated, their is no minimum requirement.  Donations will be used to purchase and distribute additional fentanyl awareness materials. All contributions are tax deductible. 

    We believe that together we can make a positive impact by delivering this information to families and communities.  Thank you for considering a donation and for your on-going support of the Sam Chase Fund. 


With love, 


The Chase Family
