After the Newtown school shootings last year, some residents formed a group to help the town. This NPR article describes them.


'Rob Cox was one member of the group, which later became known as Sandy Hook Promise.

"About eight of the 17 co-founders from the first couple of weeks in January last year were folks who play Frisbee together," Cox says.

Ultimate Frisbee has been happening Tuesday nights in Newtown, Conn., for years. None of the Frisbee players were parents of victims, but several of them had kids in the school at the time. And it's a small town. The school was close to everyone.'
