Thank you for considering a donation to support J.R. Cunningham and his family. This site was created by Edmond Memorial High School Class of 1994 and Friends as a vehicle to raise support for EMHS '94 graduate J.R. Cunningham, who is courageously battling post-concussion syndrome caused by multiple instances of head trauma received during his basketball career. For a recent story by Berry Tramel in the Daily Oklahoman about J.R.'s health challenges, click here. Many of you remember that in 1993 as #50 for the Bulldogs, J.R. had 32 points, 10 rebounds, and made two free throws with 4.0 seconds remaining in the game to lead Edmond Memorial High School to its first ever Oklahoma 5A Basketball State Championship. After the publication of the Daily Oklahoman story, a significant number of people wanted to know how they could help...well, this is one small way we can do something to support our friend and classmate. Our plan is to accept donations for J.R. and family through the weekend the EMHS Class of 1994: 20 Year Reunion, September 26-28, 2014 (click here for the reunion website). After the reunion weekend, we will announce the results to the Cunningham family and send to them the combined donations.
MyEvent.com accepts credit card payments (Visa and MasterCard). If you choose to pay the credit card and processing fees charged by MyEvent, the cost will be 5% of your donation + $0.75 per donation (e.g. $10 net donation = $11.25 cost to you). You will also have an opportunity to donate by cash or check during various activities over the 20 Year Reunion Weekend (details to come on the reunion website). We have set a somewhat arbitrary goal of $10,000 for tracking purposes, but every little bit will help. 100% of the net donations will be given directly to the Cunningham family. If you have any questions or concerns, please click the link at the bottom of this page to contact by email the organizers of this fundraising drive, and we will respond as soon as possible.
Many thanks in advance for your donation. Using the links above, please share this site over Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and email with any of your friends and family that would be interested in supporting the Cunningham Family. #94for50 #SupportJR
