Passing of Dave Mackenzie
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Old Rugbeian and former Chicago Fellow, Dave Mackenzie, passed away from heart complications as he crossed the finish line of a half marathon in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
Needless to say, the Mackenzie Family and the racquets community in the US and the UK has been rocked by the news of losing Dave so prematurely. Dave's twin brother George Mackenzie was our Detroit Fellow in 2011. Both George and Dave have participated in a number of tournaments at the Detroit Racquet Club over the years.
George has flown to the UAE to support Dave’s partner and bring him home. He has asked the racquets community at large to share the link to the charity Dave was running for - in the hope that some small shred of positivity can be taken from this terrible situation. We're not sure how this will work transatlantically but any small donation would mean a huge amount to the Mackenzie family as they grapple with this horrible moment. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/donation-web/fundraiser?fundraiserActivityId=1254899&stop_mobi=yes
