Molly Bryant family starts fundraiser to support Orange Beach lifeguards
By Gary Lloyd
ORANGE BEACH — The family of Molly Bryant recently started a new campaign to raise $4,000 for two new defibrillators for the lifeguards at Orange Beach, according to Fox 10 TV.
Bryant, a Trussville native, drowned while on vacation in 2003. She was 15.
Since 2011, “Molly’s Patrol” has partnered with Orange Beach Safety, helping raise money for necessary items and the lifeguard system.
According to the TV station, Bryant’s sister, Emily Freeman, is leading this campaign, which has a goal to raise awareness.
“One person could’ve easily donated that money, but it’s more about getting the community involved,” Freeman told the TV station. “Not just the community, but the state. Where people across the state can share in this.”
As of Thursday morning, $3,045 of the $4,000 had already been raised.
