The Sean "Ranch" Lough Foundation was started in memory of Sean - a dear friend, brother and son who tragically passed away in June of 2001 as a result of a mountain biking accident. In his twenty-nine years of life, Ranch accomplished more than many do in a lifetime. One of his greatest attributes was his ability to live every day to its fullest and have a good time, while focusing on accomplishing the high goals he set for himself.
Although his life and bright future were cut short, his spirit will remain in everyone he knew and his legacy will provide scholarships for deserving young students. This legacy lives on as each year we throw the biggest and best Derby Party in the country, raising money to provide four-year scholarships to those who would otherwise not be able to attend college.
