Emily Hyatt, Laura Hough and Jordan Mondt greet patrons of McAlister's Deli on Monday night with information about the night's fundraiser benefiting an upcoming 5K race in memory of Jeremy Porter and Sean Radcliff, two Marching Mizzou students who died this summer. Members of Marching Mizzou worked alongside McAlister's staff, aiding in the serving and busing of the tables.

COLUMBIA — Four MU music organizations are co-hosting their first fundraiser, benefiting a 5K run that honors two Marching Mizzou members who were killed in a car accident.

Kappa Kappa Psi, Phi Mu Alpha, Sigma Alpha Iota and Tau Beta Sigma are hosting the event from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday at McAlister's Deli, 1205 Grindstone Parkway.

The fundraising committee suggests a $5 donation and hopes to raise more than $100 at the event. Attendance is free, and food will be available for donors.

Money collected will go toward the Sean and Jeremy 5K — a run that will fund the purchase of a memorial bench on the MU Quad and commission of a music piece in their honor.

The 5K will take place at MU at 9.m. on April 14, said Ashley Otte, president of Tau Beta Sigma.

Sean Radcliff and Jeremy Porter died in a car accident last June while driving through Oklahoma after visiting a friend in Texas. Both were members of Phi Mu Alpha.
