Lyon Newell Charity Throws Meet
MARCH 22, 2017
The Lyon Newell Charity Throws Meet is unique in that it is a sporting event, a memorial event, and a charity event all in one. In addition to donating to Wilmer Hall, a portion of the proceeds will go towards a scholarship in memory of Lyon Newell, who died in a tragic accident in October 2002, shortly after graduating from the University of Alabama. As many as 92 high schools from Alabama, Florida and Mississippi are invited each year to participate in this event in memory of the former student athlete and graduate of UMS-Wright. This event has raised $150,000 to date for charities.

The 15th Annual Lyon Newell Charity Throws Meet was held on March 22, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. at the UMS-Wright campus.
