The Goals:

Patrick Lives On . . . believes every child deserves an opportunity to live a positive and productive life.

We are committed to:
– Establishing The PBCA throughout Chicagoland.
– Raising funds to help Chicago are at-risk teens participate in positive and life-affirming activities.
Every $300 donation gives a child the opportunity to participate in an extra-curricular activity of their choice.

Why and how they are joining the fight to save lives

Patrick Lives On was established to honor Patrick Boswell, who lost his life to gun violence when he was only 14 years old simply for being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Patrick Lives On educational films and public service announcements raise awareness about programs that can help break the cycle of violence, to keep our kids safe and engaged.

Patrick Lives On scholarship programs encourage children to engage in positive year-round activities to discover their passions and reduce the chance of them being lured into gangs and gun violence.
