The George Karusky, IV Memorial Foundation keeps the spirit of GK4 alive. Georgie was a true Ryan Raider, a three-sport athlete who played baseball, soccer, and football. Being a student in the Bonaventure Program allowed Georgie to reach his full academic potential. He was set to start Chestnut Hill College to play football in the fall of 2020. Georgie gained great relationships with many people because of school and sports. At such a young age, he brought many people together and truly embraced everyone that he met. 

He is Forever in Our Hearts.
