Linton community gathers to honor Madi Moore during cruise-in event


LINTON Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– The Linton community joined Sunday to gather in prayer for Madi Moore and her family.

Moore passed away Monday after a battle with graft vs. host disease. She was 17 and a rising senior at Linton-Stockton High School.

Sunday’s Cruise for a Cause event had local food vendors, and musicians attended and offered their services to raise funds.

Officials said all donations and profits from the event went to the family for support and to help them through this hard situation.

Community leaders as well as local churches organized a prayer Sunday afternoon to share in Madi’s love for god and to keep the faith going.

Mayor of Linton John Wilkes said this shows how much his community cares. He said this is the type of community Linton is.

I think it shows what kind of community we have I mean you look around you look at all the people. We’ve walked around this park and we’ve got people from all walks of life from Linton here in this park. They have all come out. The band… they come out to play for nothing. All of the churches in the community have come together. I think that shows what kind of community we have here of god fearing loving people, and that’s what we have here in Linton
