Fund Established to Build Yeardley Love Field Published at 9:07 PM EDT on May 26, 2010 | Updated at 9:15 PM EDT on May 26, 2010
The family of
Yeardley Love has established a fund to build a turf field at the high school where she played lacrosse.
Love was found beaten to death on May 3 at the
University of Virginia, where she was a senior on the lacrosse team. George Huguely, a member of the UVA men's lacrosse team, has been charged in the slaying.
Love's family has created a
memorial fund at Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson, Md., with the hope that the funds raised will go toward building Yeardley Love Memorial Field.
It is estimated that the turf field project will require $1 million to complete. The school has collected 3 percent of that total.
Love graduated from Notre Dame Prep in 2006.
