When their daughter, Laura, was in an elevator accident, Sandy Raines and Ron Cadieux were inspired by the outpouring of caring, love and support they received from their new community. To show their appreciation, the family recently made a $500,000 gift to the community through their fund at the Foundation for improvements to the Rose Run Park corridor. As a result, the beautiful pedestrian bridge in Rose Run Park will be named “Raines Crossing.” The bridge not only adds a distinctive architectural element to the park, but also provides a safe crossing for students between the school campus and the New Albany town center.

“This caring community wrapped our family up with love and kindness,” said Sandy Raines. “It was more than we ever could have imagined. We believe life doesn’t happen to you; it happens for you – experiencing this hardship while receiving the outpouring of support truly emphasized this sentiment.”
