John and Tina Socci lost their daughter, Katie, in 2011, when she was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, and are now raising Katie's daughter, Sydney. Only two years after her death, Katie's brother Chris died from a heroin overdose. It was his first time using heroin.
In the intervening years, John and Tina have created the Katie M. Socci Memorial Scholarship for nursing students at Cayuga Community College, the Katie M. Socci Memorial Fund, which raises money through the Socci Stilletto Stampede and other events for victims of domestic violence and organizations who support them. They are also founding board members of HEAL, the Heroin Epidemic Action League, whose mission is to prevent substance abuse and initiate and implement needed resources to assist those affected by the disease of addiction.
