Moore -

For the last four months, an international fundraiser has been raising money to honor three Moore high school students killed in a hit and run by an alleged drunk driver.

They're using the hashtag #10MooreMinutes.

#10MooreMinutes says they've raised nearly $11,000 in honor of the students who died in that tragic incident back in February.

The money will be presented Thursday morning to the Moore Alumni Association.They'll be using that money to start a scholarship fund in memory of the students, Rachel Freeman, Yuridia Martiniez, and Kolby Crum.

#10MooreMinutes is a social media movement encouraging runners everywhere to run for ten minutes, because that's what the Moore High School students were doing before the hit and run.

Anyone who took part where asked to take pictures and put them on social media under hashtag #10MooreMinutes.

T-shirts with the hashtag and the names of the students were also sold with 100 percent of the profits going towards the scholarship fund.

"There are a lot of great people in this world, and when you are in some of the greatest valleys, there are a lot of people who can stand there and lift you up," said Nikki Keck, an organizer.

Check Presentation will be held later Thursday morning, at the pond around Moore High School near where the accident happened.
