NCAA Shuts Down Trevor Lawrence's GoFundMe Page For COVID-19

NCAA rules force Trevor Lawrence girlfriend to shut down coronavirus GoFundMe

NCAA rules force Trevor Lawrence girlfriend to shut down coronavirus GoFundMe

After The State released its short article- and after many individuals on Twitter reacted madly to the news- the NCAA informed Clemson that Lawrence and Mowry's fundraiser can continue and revealed that it will permit universities discretion in these circumstances.

Lawrence and Mowry wished to assist individuals throughout the coronavirus crisis.

"We continue to work with member schools so they have the flexibility to ensure that student-athletes and communities impacted by this illness are supported, and we applaud Trevor for his efforts", the NCAA said in its statement. The couple raised $2,670 through a GoFundMe campaign that was stopped soon after it started Monday.

The NCAA has chose to allow Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend, Marissa Mowry, to continue their fundraiser to help families affected by the COVID-19 virus. A Clemson official confirmed to Matt Connolly of The State on Tuesday that using an athlete using his or her name, image and likeness for crowd funding is prohibited by NCAA rules.

Clemson's athletic department also issued a statement addressing the development. Lawrence and Mowry later took to his Instagram stories to address the situation.

The Roosevelt has about 800 test kits on board and "we're flying more on there today", he said. Naval Hospital Guam for further evaluation and treatment as necessary", he said.

"Shoutout to the NCAA". "Thank you guys, all of y'all that donated". They weren't trying to stop us from helping raise money for this cause. "So we're going to take some time and kind of think about how we're going to restart it back up". They explained that they're going to figure out the best way to raise the money as fast and efficiently as possible and to reach as many folks as they can.

Sadly, the Torch and Pitchfork Store in my neighborhood has been deemed "non-essential" by the state of NY but that turned out to be a moot point, as the NCAA quickly issued a statement to proclaim its innocence, and after further investigation, it turns out it was actually Clemson's compliance department that instructed Lawrence to err of on the side of caution.

I mean, come on NCAA.

Mowry was asking for COVID-19 relief donations Tuesday, urging her Instagram followers to help out. Rather than giving money to individual families, Mowry said in the Instagram video that the funds raised will go to No Kid Hungry and Meals on Wheels.
