Lauren McCluskey’s mother, Jill, has set up a memorial fund in honor of her daughter who was murdered this week.

Jill posted on Twitter Friday morning:

These past few days have been a deep, dark valley, but we are hoping for some light. The Lauren McCluskey Memorial Fund will provide scholarships for student-athletes in track and field. This will be an endowed fund and will therefore live forever. https://t.co/KyrH05Tg9l

McCluskey’s family organized the fund to honor the memory of Lauren McCluskey. Lauren’s family suggested funds collected support future scholarships for student-athletes in track and field.

Lauren was a standout track and field athlete at Pullman High School. She later moved to The University of Utah where she earned 2017 honorable mention Pac-12 All-Academic and 2017 MPSF All-Academic.
