Former Longhorn Kris Boyd sets up fundraiser for Uvalde victims

Former Texas Longhorns defensive back and now Minnesota Viking Kris Boyd is making a coordinated effort to support the victims of the tragic Uvalde shooting that took place at Robb Elementary on Thursday afternoon.

Boyd launched a GoFundMe with the goal to raise upwards of $150,000 for those impacted by the catastrophe.

I pray we can come together and show our condolences, love, and support in any way. We pray for change as a nation and have to start by taking action as one! We must protect our youth at all cost. All money will be sent directly to the families that were part of the tragedy in Robb elementary.
