Academic Scholarship andOrgan Donor Awareness

The Cody Jude Memorial Foundation was founded in 2013, shortly after the Cody's tragic death. The goal of the foundation is to keep Cody's fiery spirit alive in our community through the promotion of organ donor awareness and to raise money for a full scholarship at Scranton Preparatory School. The recipient will embody the spirit of Cody.

The Foundation has established a number of fundraising events in Northeast Pa to allow a full scholarship to be given out yearly at Scranton Prep and to offset the costs that many organ donor recipients face in their times of need. These events include The Cody Barrasse 3-On-3 Tournament held at Scranton Prep, and the Continue Cody’s Commitment Evening Event to Support Organ Donor Awareness. Stay tuned for more Foundation Events throughout the year.

Organ Donor Funding and Assistance in NEPA

In Establishment of the Foundation, we have also partnered with Donate Life America to establish an event to raise funds and awareness touch a life changing cause. This evening event, “Continuing Cody’s Commitment” follows the 3 on 3 basketball Tournament. The monies raised from the event will be used to help defray the many expenses that families of patients waiting for transplantation face.
