Details: John Clayton Memorial Fund benefiting the Multiple Sclerosis Society

The John Clayton Memorial Fund was founded to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society, an MS research organization supported by the Claytons, after the passing in March of legendary NFL journalist and longtime Seattle Sports Station radio host John Clayton. The fund received an initial investment of $10,000 donated by Bonneville International Corporation, the parent company of Seattle Sports. A full 100% of donations received by the fund are donated to the cause.

Known to millions as “The Professor,” John Clayton enjoyed a Hall of Fame career that included covering the Seattle Seahawks as a beat writer for The Tacoma News Tribune, a long tenure as an ESPN NFL analyst, and hosting sports radio shows in Seattle, including Seattle Sports 710 AM for the past 14 years. He was a daily presence on Seattle Sports radio shows as well as a longtime contributor to SeattleSports.com as a columnist.

Walk MS raises awareness and funds to help those with multiple sclerosis. For more details or to get involved, visit the MS Society website here.
