MORA receives donation to honor fallen Jackson Prep student

The school raised $10,000 in honor of classmate Walker Wilbanks, an organ donor in 2014.

The event took place at MORA headquarters in Flowood.

It was part of the Racing for Donation 8K.

Walker Wilbanks passed away two years ago after collapsing at a football game.

His organs were then donated to help save the lives of others.
