This winter, the Bison soccer team participated in the Miles for Murphy GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for Mercer University women’s soccer player Kim Murphy.
Murphy’s father died of a heart attack this winter and shortly after her mother lost a long battle with cancer and died.
“Kim is in desperate need of our help and would never ask for it herself,” wrote GoFundMe page creator, Kimberly Cropp, the mother of one of Kim’s friends. “I am certain it is hard for us all to imagine the pain that Kim is dealing with right now.”
Feeling they needed to help a fellow member of the college soccer community, the Bison started its effort to help Kim in any way possible. The team collectively ran 381 miles in five days and raised $3,000 for Kim.
Kim Murphy’s Fund has raised $35,552 in three months and is still active at GoFundMe.com.[/text_output]
