In Memory of Julia

Julia Cukier Siegler was struck and killed on February 26, 2010, while crossing the corner at Sunset Blvd. and Cliffwood on her way to catch a school bus. A community captured in grief and confusion was ably led by the kindness and commitment of fellow classmates.

A Slow Down For Julia bracelet campaign begun by Harvard-Westlake 9th graders Jake Feiler, Eli Kogan and Max Thoeny, raised funds for awareness, safety improvements and education programs that assist enforcement and raise sensitivity to hazards behind the wheel and on the ground. It is also a call to action for all of us to notice and experience life in a way that appreciates its frailty.

Your contribution to CCF’s “In Memory of Julia” fund will be distributed to charitable efforts that serve these goals, as well as support the creative arts that defined Julia’s brief, yet everlasting, existence.

Look at the photos below to learn about who she was….and still is…for so many.
