On behalf of the team at Movemeant Foundation, it is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our Vice President, Kelly Hurley. She was 31 years old.
Many of you knew Kelly as a vibrant and unique personality; a steadfast champion of social activism. This included everything from her work in women's self-acceptance and body-positivity at Movement Foundation, to sparking engaging political dialogue on women's rights, LGBTQ, and more.
She was also a curious and versatile intellectual who could recite lines of poetry and narrate her favorite scenes from Harry Potter novels, just as well as she could ride a SoulCycle bike and teach make-up contouring—proving that her interests were varied and her capabilities were endless.
Kelly journeyed through life by making an indelible impression on all those who were lucky enough to call her a friend. We are comforted that her memory serves as an inspiration to all who desire to give back to social causes, and to live with passion and purpose.
Services for Kelly will be held on Monday, April 24 at Ave Maria Memorial Chapel, 609 Main Street in Watsonville, California. Visitation begins at 9 am, followed by a funeral service at 11 am. Graveside services to follow immediately after at Pajaro Valley Memorial Park.
Jenny Gaither and Charina Lumley, Founder and COO of Movemeant Foundation
