The truck attack in Nice, France on Bastille Day, July 14, 2016, claimed the lives of an American father and son. Sean Copeland, 51, and his 11-year-old son Brodie were killed in the attack. Maegan Copeland, a Kappa Kappa Gamma alumna, and Sean Copeland, an Alpha Tau Omega, were in France celebrating together. The celebration turned into a tragedy, Condolences to their family.

The link to their GoFundMe account is posted below, and we encourage you to make a donation to help our sister and her family through this time of loss. We cannot imagine the heartbreak you feel – we are here for you always.
