The Conor Morrissey Legacy Dodgeball Tournament

Conor Morrissey was a lot of things. He was an avid swimmer, a passionate artist, an Oak Forest High School alumni, and a beloved son and a brother. He was also a young man living with epilepsy. His life was cut short at the age of 23 when he died of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy caused by a seizure in 2017.

Get Up and Help, in cooperation with Oak Forest High School and the Morrissey family, wants to celebrate Conor Morrissey’s life and passions.

They are sponsoring a Dodgeball Tournament which will take place at Oak Forest High School on April 27th, 2019. Conor loved dodgeball and Get Up and Help thought what better way to bring the community together, celebrate Conor and raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago.
