“Life is a gift, so live it to the fullest. Grow happy and gaily, for you only have one shot,” that’s the beginning of a poem written by 14-year-old Dragon Kim.

A teen often described as wise beyond his age. A boy, whose life ended along with his friend Justin Lee on August 14, 2015.

Park rangers say a large tree branch broke and fell on a tent where Dragon and Justin were sleeping. Both were killed.

His parents established The Dragon Kim Foundation “in our son’s honor to carry on his love of life to make it possible for other young people to pursue interests in areas in which Dragon himself was passionate, and to help give others the access to a bright future.”





The foundation gives young people access to more opportunities.
