Rachel's Challenge: Make Your Life a Chain Reaction of Kindness
Her family always knew Rachel was special. But they had no idea how extraordinary she was until they found five journals in her room after her death.
Rachel Joy Scott was the first person shot and killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. She was only 17 years old. Her family always knew Rachel was special, but they had no idea how extraordinary she was until they found five journals in her room after her death. Rachel wrote the most insightful, uplifting messages, encouraging anyone who read her words to live to their fullest potential and start a chain reaction of kindness.

So overwhelmed by their daughter's compassion and love for others, the Scott family turned Rachel's writings into a powerful and motivational school presentation. I was able to watch one of them at South Park Middle School, outside of Pittsburgh, PA.
This is the story I shot about my experience:
In its 20 years, Rachel's Challenge has reached some 20 million school kids in all 50 states and across forty countries. In Pennsylvania alone, more than sixty schools this school year have shown the program to their students with remarkable results.
