The Sentinel: Theater shooting survivor plans to change more lives with scholarship

Aurora theater shooting survivor Zack Golditch has tried to give back to his community in several ways over the last decade and he’s found another way, as his combination 5K/scholarship idea for the 7/20 10-year anniversary is intended to lend a helping hand financially to a student in the same Aurora Public Schools system he attended. Golditch, a Gateway High School graduate and star offensive lineman on the football field who played at Colorado State and briefly with a handful of NFL teams, now works for South Metro Fire Rescue.

Story excerpt:

"Ten years ago, the trajectory of Zack Golditch’s life took a turn.

Now, the survivor of the Aurora theater shooting hopes to positively alter the path of another Aurora Public Schools student with a life-changing scholarship.

The inaugural Hero’s Journey 5K run on July 23 will wind through Aurora to the 7/20 Memorial Reflection Garden and fund a scholarship for an Aurora Public Schools student that culminates a dream Golditch — who graduated from Gateway High School a year after the tragedy — has had for a long time.

'My life was changed that night and hopefully this scholarship can change the life of another student in a good way,' Golditch, 27, told The Sentinel."
