HAMLET – Last week, approximately 75 students from Richmond County School’s Early College gathered on Richmond Community College’s campus outside of the Lindsey-Petris building to celebrate the life of Christopher Michael Fore.
Fore, who recently passed away from gastric stomach cancer at the age of 33, lived in Moore County. He and his brother Steven Fore, who are well known on RCC’s campus, operate a food truck during lunch hours for students and faculty. The Fore brothers were commonly known as “the food truck guys” of the popular spot “What’s Fore Lunch.”
To bring awareness about gastric stomach cancer, senior April Gonzalez, president of the Richmond Early College Beta Club, and other students joined together to share some important facts and statistics about the disease. Following this, a moment of silence was held in memory of Fore.
Those in attendance released balloons in remembrance of Fore, celebrating his life and the success of his food truck.
Alison Padron, treasurer of the Beta Club, presented a card with donations to his brother, Stephen. Gonzalez closed by thanking the students and faculty for helping to exceed the Club’s $500 goal.
