Our Story

Suzanne’s Sea Glass Sprint was started in honor of our mother, Suzanne Rudin, who was tragically murdered by her husband on February 17th, 2018 (in her home in Hamburg, PA) just days before moving to Colorado. She was 58 years old and worked at Guardian Life Insurance as an Executive Assistant.

Suzanne was an intelligent, strong, beautiful, determined, and confident woman. She lit up every room she entered and had the most contagious laugh. She was so exceptionally talented that she could demo, renovate and redecorate a home all by herself. Her passions for gardening, painting, and jewelry-making, showed how creative she truly was. What she cherished the most was hunting for sea glass. Her favorite place is somewhere she used to call home; her ‘secret spot’ in Scituate, MA.

There are no words to describe how this has affected our family or how much we miss her everyday. For her, we remain strong and are turning this tragedy into something positive. By raising awareness, getting people talking, and giving back we hope to help end domestic violence and make sure what happened to our Mom doesn’t have to happen to someone else. 


Sarah and Samuel are Suzanne’s children and homicide victim survivors. 

Our goal is to help put a stop to domestic violence and to spread awareness on the dangers of it. No woman should every feel threatened or unsafe. 

This is our tribute to you, we love and miss you so much Mom!
