Alison B. Parker '12 Memorial Fund
Organized by: Robert Wagner
Due to the continued interest in donations, I have deceided to extend the deadline of the fundraiser until the end of this weekend. If you haven't gotten a chance to contribute and would like to, now is the time! Thank you so much.
This past summer, my friend and fellow JMU Duke, Journalist Alison Parker, was killed in a senseless act of violence while on the job reporting. Alison and I were friends and classmates at JMU, we both rose up through the ranks of SMAD and I watched as she pursued her dreams to become the reporter she had always wanted to be.
In an effort to pay respects and honor our fallen Duke, James Madison University has opened a scholarship fund in her name so that her memory and passion for journalism may live on in the futures of other students.
I will be joining my two good friends, Scott Philips and John Fitzgerald V. for the Great Floridian Triatholon, a team based Iron Man challenge on October 25th. Scott will be running a marathon, John will be swimming the 2.4 mile swim, and I will be tackling the 112 mile bike ride. Please donate and help me reach my goal to honor my fallen friend.
