FHU Cheerleaders Raising Money in Memory of Athlete’s Sister

Henderson, Tenn. - Feb 12, 2016

The Freed-Hardeman University cheerleaders are coordinating a fundraiser in memory of a Lion basketball player’s late sister. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.

Matt Moody, a member of FHU’s basketball team is a sophomore from Millington, Tennessee. His sister, Lauren Moody, passed away Dec. 30, 2015, at 15 when she lost her battle with cancer. She was a member of the Munford Church of Christ and played both varsity basketball and volleyball at Tipton-Rosemark Academy.

Money is being raised Jan. 30-Feb. 16. Elizabeth Stokes of the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life will attend the Lion basketball game Feb. 18 to accept a check in memory of Lauren Moody.

Those who would like to help may purchase a paper lion in honor of a friend or loved one to be displayed on a Loyal Lions wall in Brewer Sports Center. Candygrams and other opportunities are also available to help raise funds. In addition, donations will be accepted at the FHU Athletics office or by any FHU cheerleader.
