The Sunshine Memorial Foundation is a North Dakota non-profit that was established by Van and Dee Larson in memory and in honor of their daughter, Shannon Sunshine Larson, who passed away in 2007, at the age of 31, from heat stroke while she was hiking in Arizona. The purpose of the foundation is to raise money for charitable programs promoting Shannons attitude of helping others. The Sunshine Memorial fund initiative was started in 2010 by Van and Dee Larson with the support of the Dakota Medical and Impact Foundation. As a result of the great support, generosity and enthusiasm from the community and donors, the Fund raised more than $30,000 at the first and second annual More Sunshine Walk and Fun Run, a.k.a Sunshine Fest, from which all proceeds were given to local charities.
