VISTA, Calif. (NEWS10) – A fundraiser for a gymnastics scholarship in memory of the 8-year-old girl killed in a boating hit-and-run on Lake George has raised thousands of dollars.
The Charlotte M. McCue Gymnastics Scholarship Fund was organized by a gymnastics academy at her home in California. As of Tuesday night, the page raised more than $65,000.
Many of the donations came from the Capital Region.
The following is from the YouCaring page:
Charlotte loved the sport of gymnastics, the camaraderie of her team/coaches and the gym where she spent hours training. The Charlotte M. McCue Gymnastics Scholarship is a vehicle that will allow her love and passion to live on. This fund will help bring the joy she had for the sport to those who could otherwise not afford it.
Charlotte was instantly killed on July 25 when the boat she was in was struck by another speedboat on Lake George. Her mother was also injured.
Five people have been arrested and charged in the incident.
