Bracelets to Support Mohr and Kastner Families

WINONA LAKE, Ind. – The Grace Athletic Department is selling bracelets to raise financial support for the families of Jeremy Mohr and Mallori Kastner. Bracelets are $5 apiece and should go on sale this Friday. All proceeds go to the Mohr family to assist them with the medical bills throughout Jeremy’s recovery.

“Along with our prayers and support, we also want to help the Mohr family on a financial level,” said athletic director Chad Briscoe. “This is a great opportunity for the Grace community to help relieve the Mohr family’s stress during this unexplainable tragedy.”

The bracelets that go on sale this Friday are red and read “JM” on one side and “MK” on the opposite side.  “1 Cor. 9:24-26” will also be included on the braclet, the verse Jeremy chose for the Grace Intramural Program’s vision this year. 1 Cor. 9:24-26 reads: “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.”

Wildman Corporate Apparel, located in Warsaw, is producing the bracelets, and generously covering the cost of the rush order. The bracelet orders following the rush order will have white lettering on a red bracelet. Families of the volleyball players are covering the cost of the bracelet production. Justin Oren and TJ Lynch, suitemates of Jeremy, are pioneering the fundraising campaign.

Bracelets will first go on sale at the women’s volleyball game on Friday evening, their first match since the tragedy. Grace plays Huntington at 7 p.m. You can also purchase bracelets through Grace’s Athletic Department or make a donation through Jere- my’s CaringBridge Web site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/ jeremy mohr.
