How it started...

"Our names are Chrissy Whitworth and Kelli Rich. Living in Nampa for over twenty years, we have seen our children grow up in the neighborhood, playing and riding their bicycles. Like the community, we were deeply saddened by Kyanne's tragic passing. Despite Nampa's rapid growth, this event highlighted the town's close-knit nature. Although we didn't know Kyanne's family personally, the community came together to mourn a loss that could have happened to anyone. Our children are all interconnected through neighborhoods, schools, and activities, so Kyanne's passing made us all pause, reflect, and find ways to support her family through prayer, donations, and messages. The community spirit of Nampa shone through as everyone rallied around the grieving family.


Our aim is to erect a statue of Kyanne and a small sign at the corner of Roosevelt and Midland, in the flower bed on Jackson's property. This lasting memorial will symbolize the value of Nampa's children and serve as a positive reminder to keep them and their safety in mind during our busy days."


Four-year-old Kyanne Jo Guest was struck and killed in the crosswalk of a busy street in Nampa, Idaho on December 1, 2020. This horrific accident traumatized her family and friends, and the Treasure Valley community, and left us all with a Kyanne-shaped hole in our hearts. 

Since the tragedy, Kyanne's family, friends, and community have been decorating the corner of Roosevelt and Midland where Kyanne lost her life. Kyanne's Corner Project aims to raise funds to build a permanent and beautiful statue and garden memorial to Kyanne for all of us.
