Defy All Odds
We are a non-profit organization committed to inspiring Champlain College students to defy all odds in pursuit of their dreams.
The Sarah Ramsey Strong Fund (SRSF) was established in memory of Sarah Elizabeth Ramsey whose life was tragically cut short one year after her graduation from Champlain College, Class of ’12.
We believe in creating opportunities for young people to explore their passions, overcome challenges and follow their hearts. Our mission is to invest in programs at Champlain College that foster an environment of innovation, creativity and collaboration.
We invite you to view this short video to learn more about Sarah Ramsey, and our commitment to helping students make an impact in the world, just as Sarah did during her all too short life.
