On Sept. 7, UMass freshman and former Milton High lacrosse captain Evan Jones passed away unexpectedly in his dorm room at the age of 19. Evan was known for his aggression on the field along with his burning passion for sports and exercise. He was also known as a great friend to many and loved his family dearly.
In honor of Evan, Milton High School is holding a fundraiser to start a scholarship fund in his name. The scholarship will be given out each year by the coaches at Milton High School.
The fundraiser is called "Excercise for Evan" and will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday. The even will take place at Brooks Field, right across from Milton High, and there will be Zumba, Boot Camp, dodgeball, arm wrestling, a dunk tank, and much more. There is a $20 entrance fee.
For those who cannot make the event, donations can be made out to the Evan Jones Memorial Fund (c/o MHS Boosters) and mailed to 25 Gile Road Milton, MA 02186. For more information to donate or volunteer contact Kathy Huntington at email@example.com or Mary Shapiro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
