Yeardley’s story as told by her mother



Yeardley Love lived her life with integrity, gratitude and honesty — and lots of laughter. She saw the best in everyone, and was always there to give a helping hand. Yards, as we called her, grew up in Baltimore, MD with her older sister Lexie. Yeardley loved lacrosse and, in addition to her schoolwork and athletic endeavors, she always gave of herself to others, enjoying working with underprivileged children and the elderly.

Yeardley’s Legacy


One Love exists for one reason:

 Yeardley Love was killed and her death was avoidable if anyone in her life had truly understood the unhealthy and increasingly dangerous relationship behaviors they were seeing.


At One Love, we believe that the more we know about how to identify and navigate healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, the less likely we will end up in abusive relationships.


The Unsung Hero Awards

The Yeardley Reynolds Love Unsung Hero Award recognizes the accomplishments of two student-athletes each year (one male and one female) who demonstrate dedication, integrity, humility, hard work, community service, leadership, kindness, and sportsmanship – all qualities Yeardley exemplified throughout her life.
