HI. WE ARE THE GAGES.
ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 2012, CONNOR GAGE WENT TO THE LAKE, AND HE DIDN’T COME HOME.
CONNOR WAS AT A BIRTHDAY PARTY, JUMPED FROM THE ROOF OF THE BOAT DOCK, AND DID NOT RESURFACE.
IN AN INSTANT, WE WENT FROM A HAPPY FAMILY OF FOUR, TO A BROKEN FAMILY OF THREE.
BUT THE STORY DOESN’T END THERE.

THE LV PROJECT RELENTLESSLY PURSUES THE IDEA THAT ALL PEOPLE CAN LIVE AND LOVE BUOYANTLY.

Through our WATER BUOYANCY projects, The LV Project raises awareness for drowning prevention and specifically advocates for use of life vests on lakes.

Through our LIFE BUOYANCY projects, The LV Project completes service projects that give people in need a lift in their everyday lives.

LIVE. LOVE. LIFEVEST.
