About Chris Mang
Chris Mang, who passed away in 2018, was a longtime participant in the Skagit County Special Olympics program and was a positive force for good in the Skagit community. Known for his big personality, Chris was driven by a love for the many people in his life and had a passion for helping others – he was a friend to everyone he met. He loved music and movie trivia and enjoyed karaoke with friends. As Chris often said himself, he was a “Renaissance Man:” full of life, complexity, and a great sense of humor.
The Chris Mang Memorial Fund was established to honor Chris’ life and legacy. The fund is presently supporting activities for youth experiencing homelessness at the Oasis Teen Shelter, local veteran housing in Burlington (in partnership with Community Action at the new Cascade Place Apartments), and local Special Olympics programs (including Swim Team, Pickleball, and Soccer).
