Get active with loved ones to honor victims of Tucson’s mass shooting

Beyond Tucson honors those touched by the January 8, 2011 shooting during “Congress on Your Corner” involving then-Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. And the event remembers how the community came together in the aftermath.

A dozen outdoor activities around town are encouraging people to get outside, spend time with loved ones, come together as a community and remember what’s important in life, according Beyond Tucson director Michelle Crow.

“The history of Beyond started with a tragedy,” she said. “The way that affected our community was so profound.”

A key player, Crow reached out to different groups until there were 36 different organizations that wanted to hold Beyond events.

The family of Gabe Zimmerman, Giffords’ 30-year-old director of community outreach who was killed at the shooting, joined together with a broad-based coalition of healthcare providers, public land managers and nonprofits to start Beyond on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy.
