More Than 100 People Take The Jump To Remember Keegan Tarrant In Traverse City

More than 100 people took the plunge in the West Bay Monday to remember a Traverse City girl.

The jump was to remember Keegan Tarrant, a Traverse City girl who passed away in 2015 after losing her battle with depression.

For the last four years, the Traverse City community has been jumping into the bay around Keegan’s birthday to keep her spirit alive, as well as raise money for a cause she loved.

Friends and family say mission trips were a big part of Keegan’s life.

The jump raised money for the Keegan Mission Project Scholarship Fund.

It’s a fund to help send students on mission trips.

Friends tell us it was amazing to see more than 100 people come out to jump this year.

“It’s really awesome. It speaks volumes about who Keegan was, that people still get together and have fun even after she’s gone, just in her name. People that all knew her and people who didn’t know her just come down here and have a good time,” says Emily Nelson, organizers and friend.
