A GoFundMe has been established by friends of Maxx Cheng, an eighth grader at El Roble who died of coronavirus Thursday, July 16.

“Maxx was one of Claremont’s finest young men who was recently lost during this pandemic,” fundraising organizers wrote. “Maxx was athletic, intelligent, funny and mature and was voted class president of Chaparral Elementary before heading off to El Roble.”

Maxx played the viola with the orchestra at El Roble, and was an active member of the school’s speech and debate team. He was also a competitive swimmer.

“Maxx leaves behind an amazing twin brother named Leo, who is equally impressive and our hearts are with Leo at this time,” according to the fundraising page.

Any funds received will go directly to Maxx’s mother, Charlyn, to manage the final arrangements.
