Seattle Sports and Bonneville International raised a reported $41,000 in just one day for the John Clayton Memorial Fund. The Fund, created in memory of longtime NFL reporter and radio host John “The Professor” Clayton, will benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society, a MS research organization. Clayton passed away March 18, 2022.

“Part of our company’s mission is to give back in the communities where we serve,” said Darrell Brown, President of Bonneville International. “John was a valued employee who used his own powerful voice for good. We believe this is the best way to honor his memory.”

Bonneville International seeded the fund March 20 with $10,000. The Seattle Seahawks donated $12,000.
