RICHMOND, Va. -- The family and friends of a high school basketball coach killed in a domestic violence incident have not stopped working to make sure her legacy survives.

Michelle Rawlings, 25, was killed last New Year's Eve in an apparent murder-suicide. The Atlee high school basketball coach and Norfolk State University graduate lived her life with the desire to help others, her father said.

After her death, her identical twin sister Nicole, created the Michelle Rawlings Legacy Foundation as a way to help stop domestic violence.

For CBS 6 Gives, sports director Lane Casadonte donated to Rawlings' legacy fund.
