We at Detroit PAL are very sorry to share that Cynthia Covington, our finance and business administration assistant and volunteer extraordinaire, passed away last night.
Those of us who knew Cynthia know she had a giant heart for the kids and families in Detroit. There was not a Detroit PAL event, small or large, that Cynthia did not volunteer to set up tables and chairs, collect money, pass out forms, check people in, or pass out trophies. She was a kindred spirit and she will most definitely be missed by staff, coaches, parents, and kids alike.
We are grateful to the entire Covington Family for sharing this wonderful woman with our organization and the volunteers, kids, and families we serve. We are glad that Cynthia was surrounded by friends and family during her last days. We will keep Cynthia’s spirit alive through all our amazing kids and families and all that we do collectively every day. She would have had it no other way.
As always, thank you for your support,
The Detroit PAL Family
