Cindy Lavigne

Cindy Lavigne is a prominent figure in the Manchester sports scene. It is rare to spot her without her camera, as she diligently captures moments across all levels of sports, from the professional arena to college, high school, and even middle school. She's even been spotted snapping pictures at elementary and recreational events around the city!

As a freelance photographer, Cindy shares her work on platforms like 603Basketball and Manchester InkLink. Her website, Lavigne's Live Shots, serves as a repository of cherished memories for anyone seeking them.

But Cindy's contributions go far beyond photography. She generously dedicates her time and talents to various endeavors, notably supporting Safe Sports athletes. From volunteering at numerous events, such as our Safe Sports Social and concession stands, to contributing to our auctions and making personal contributions, Cindy's commitment as a multi-year donor underscores her enduring dedication to our kids.

Cindy is a dedicated sports mom, wife and all-around fan. Having her as a part of the Greater Manchester community has greatly enriched it, and our Safe Sports kids have benefited immensely from her constant presence. Without a doubt, Cindy is most highly deserving of recognition for her remarkable contributions to our young athletes.
