Reminder: Exercise for Evan - this Saturday, October 11th

When Evan Jones, MHS Class of 2011, passed away at the age of 19 from Sudden Unexpected Death due to Epilepsy (SUDEP), the entire town mourned the untimely loss of this generous and kind athlete.  Now, his family and friends continue to turn their grief into something positive by raising money to improve the weight room at MHS, something very important to Evan. On Saturday, October 11, the Second Annual fundraising event at the high school entitled “Exercise for Evan,” and will feature a wide array of games and activities including a Dunk Tank, Zumba class, Boot Camp, Dodge Ball, a 50/50 raffle and more.  The event is from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at Brooks Field.  In the event of rain, the fundraiser will be moved to the Copeland Field House.  Admission is $20 per person, and $5 for children 10 and younger. The money raised at this event will support updating the weight room equipment, as well to support scholarships that will be awarded next spring to two graduating seniors at Milton High School.  For more information or to volunteer, contact Kristan Bagley Jones at
