Donations for Michigan Center Tragedy

Donation protected



Five young men were part of a devastating tragedy that has left the MC Community with broken hearts.

Dawson Brown, Kole Sova and Richie Mays Jr.  all from Michigan Center passed away unexpectedly from carbon monoxide poisoning on July 17, 2021. Our love and prayers go to your families and friends as we all grieve such a tragic loss.

Rayfield Johnson from Michigan Center and Kurtis Stitt from Lansing are still fighting for their lives. Prayers for these two young men, their families and the medical teams as their fight continues.

Michigan Center Athletic Boosters is organizing donations for the four Michigan Center families: Dawson, Kole, Richie and Rayfield. The boosters will evenly divide all proceeds amongst the four MC families. Funds will be used towards medical expenses for Rayfield and future scholarships in honor of Dawson, Kole and Richie.

We would like to acknowledge and send our support to the family of Kurtis Stitt; their wishes are for the funds to stay in the Michigan Center community and the affected MC families. We ask for continued thoughts and prayers for Kurtis as he fights his battle. Our community stands with you.

Please consider donating if you are able to do so. We are very grateful for every donation during this difficult time.

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and support.
