Braxston Banks/Children's Fund

$20,519 of $250k goal

Raised by 146 people in 13 days

We lost a kind and gentle soul on Wednesday, March 8th when Braxston Banks (ND '90) passed away suddenly.  He was a star running back at Notre Dame and played on the 1988 ND National Championship team.  More than anything, Braxston adored his three beautiful children-- Khabyl, Khorin and Storm.  His memorial service is this Saturday, March 18th.  (In-box me for details).  In lieu of flowers, please show your love by contributing to a scholarship and education fund for his children.  In his absence, we embrace and lift up his kids and know that through them, his spirit lives on.  On behalf of his mother, Priscilla, and sister, Nicole, peace and blessings and thank you for your generosity.

In his final days, Braxston talked often about his dreams and aspirations for his three beautiful children, Khabyl, Storm and Khorine. Ensuring that they each went to college was something very important to B. The kids are all in high school now and his oldest, Khabyl, graduates this May so college is right around the corner. That's why I am reaching out again today to ask that you please make a gift to the children's education fund. Let's help ensure that Braxston's last wishes for the success and happiness of his children are fulfilled. Thanks to all who have contributed and please help spread the word. With gratitude, Lisa Marie Boykin

Braxston you were an amazing individual and I'm glad that we were friends. I've got some great memories. It's so sad that you are no longer with us, but the memory of you will always be with me.
