The Rocio Guillen Foundation
Just Breathe, The Rocio Guillen Foundation was founded by Marcus and Christopher Guillen in memory of their mother Rocio Guillen whose life was tragically taken October 1st, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada during the Route 91 Fest. As a way of ensuring her memory was honored, Marcus and Christopher turned to her mantra “Just Breathe” and vowed to continue doing what she had always encouraged, which was help those less fortunate.
The Rocio Guillen Foundation strives to inspire hope to those who have experienced loss due to violence and contribute to the well being and education of those less fortunate.
Rocio Guillen Rocha was raised in Anaheim, California. She was a lifelong runner who used the sport to overcome many obstacles. Her mantra “JUST BREATHE” was one she used while overcoming temporary paralysis caused by complications during pregnancy.
How We Help
We strive daily to make a difference in our community and in the world that we live in. We believe that it is up to us to “BE THE GOOD” in the world. Although the core group of those we serve are underprivileged families and children who have lost a parent to violence just as we have, we look for opportunities to help as many people from all walks of life.
