They raised funds and awareness in memory of their dear friend Innocent Habiyaremye, who passed away from a Pulmonary Embolism when he was only 32 years old, while travelling on business. Innocent was currently living in North Brunswick, NJ.
Innocent’s friends described him, “Innocent truly appreciated life. He knew he was lucky to be alive and he LIVED. He danced, he sang, he loved and laughed often. He skydived and tough-muddered and relaxed and watched movies and his Steelers and Heat! Innocent was an amazing person. He was good to others and made us all feel really good and made our lives better just for knowing him.”
