On August 7, 2000, Carrie Brown was killed in a tragic car accident at the young age of 14. She was riding in the car with her best friends Amy, who was also killed, and Zak, who fortunately survived . All three attended Greenwood Lakes Middle School in Lake Mary Florida and were on their way home from the first day of eight grade.
Carrie was a very active young girl and one of her favorite things was to attend Camp Wewa every Summer. She excelled in many sports and was quite the marksman. She held the highest record for 2 consecutive summers at Camp Wewa in both Archery and Riflery. She also enjoyed soccer, was a black belt in tae-kwo-do and played on a co-ed basketball team.
In the summers Carrie also enjoyed riding horses and four wheelers when visiting her Dad in Minnesota.
Carrie wanted to attend Bishop Moore High School in Orlando, where he sister Jenn went. She often bragged to friends that she wanted to break the record, held by her sister, for the most varsity letters (14) ever earned by a male or female athlete.
Carrie is sadly missed but it is with the Carrie Brown Foundation that her spirit lives.
