 HACKETTSTOWN, NJ
Evan was a seior who was taken to soon. Friday night we played our normal friday night game against summitt nj when tradgedy struck. Evan was hit after the ball was thrown but got up like nothing happened. not long after Evan had felt woozy and was taken by ambulance to the hospital. As the hours went on we finally were told that our Captain had passed away. As a friend of Evans, I wanted to do something for the family. I started with a goal of 15,000 but shortly realized that Evans passing was felt around the nation. 25,000 was our new goal and we made it last night around 9:30. Not thinking that people would donate i asked around to see if i should rasie it again, some people said yes and some said no, so i just left it. This morning i woke up to an email from someone in town and they told along with many others from around the nation to bump it up because people think they cannot donate anymore. Our new goal is 50,000. this money is ALL going to the Murray family to pay for funeral costs, a stone, medical bills, etc... Thank you to everyone who has donated.

Rudy Cope, The loss of a child is an unbearable loss that no one should have to suffer. I do not appreciate your comments about my post. MY daughter is an Alumni of WHHS...So it is not inappropriate to share our tragedy too. I was merely sharing MY Story about my recent loss(July) with the Murray family. What makes one child's death over another inappropriate, it is a shared grief, a shared tragic story. It is still raw for us and his death hits us hard. MY youngest daughter was at the game that night and is deeply affected by this tragedy. As I stated this community has suffered three deaths this year, my daughter Kinsey Fredericks-Bishow, Colin Brown and Evan Murray. ALL FROM THE SAME HIGH SCHOOL. BTW, I was one of the first to contribute to this campaign and will be supporting a WHHS student with a scholarship in Kinsey's honor (arranged with school before this tragic event). To the Murray family my heart and soul are with you and your family, I'm sorry if you miss understood my post and may you hold onto hope because that is all you got.

SO inappropriate for people like Christine Salvemini to use this page as a means to 'advertise' another philanthropic cause, worthy though it may be.. Disgusting. I am heartbroken over your loss, Murray family and hold you up in my prayers.

Response to Mr. Bartiromo - No one is trying to profit off this death. This site was set up by a young lady who just wanted to do something for the Murray Family. The Murray family is in no way going to profit off this! The Murray's are hardworking people who lost their son. They aren't even aware of this fundraiser! If you knew these people you would know that they will take any money received in their son's memory and put it to good use. Shame on you for passing judgement!

This i s such a horrible tragedy for his family and his friends and the whole community. I will be praying for his family and of the families of the other two kids that died this year from the same high school. When losing someone that you love, anyone with compassion in their hearts, relates to the situation. Let's all be like Evan and be nice and kind to each other. Let's honor this great football player by showing him that we can all support one another and be there for each other. Evan is resting in peace with the Lord. Let's be there for each other. Praying for all. May you find the strength to go on.

my condolences to the Murray family...as a graduate of Watchung Hills , living in Sarasota,Florida I always notice when a Watchung , Warren headline is in the news as well as Warren Hills because of the similar name although not the same place..as soon as this story broke ....I remembered my friend Mike Quinto was the baseball coach there.....and then I saw Mike on various News reports .....in addition to being a sportscaster here in Florida, I was a coach and athletic director for many years...and unfortunately I have expierenced a tragedy like this on three different occasions , mostly auto accidents and not on the field......it will linger for a long time...with each field you played on ...event , store , location, or restaurant you were together at......and it never leaves you totally....over 20 years later when I pass a field I think " who would have thought that would be his last day " HANG IN THERE and best wishes for everyone's recovery.... and if Mike see's this or a friend of Mike's feel free to give me a call...........ed

Cannot begin to understand the pain that his poor Mum and Dad must be feeling right now. He sounded like a wonderful young man and to lose him so suddenly is just such an injustice. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends right now. R.I.P Evan.
