The MambaOnThree Fund has also been created to support the families of the other victims of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe and Gianna, Alyssa Altobelli, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Payton Chester, Sarah Chester, Christina Mauser and Ara Zobayan.

Gianna shared the same love for basketball as her dad, and she wanted to someday play for the University of CT.
