Tulane University has announced its latest endeavor to assist with the recovery of injured student athlete Devon Walker — Devon’s Den. This privately funded project is providing needed materials and services for an addition of a bedroom and bathroom to the Walker home in Destrehan, La.
“The manner that he has faced this tremendous adversity in his young life has been inspirational to many of us. With this project we are committed to providing the best level of medical care and accommodations in order for him to achieve his goals of graduating from Tulane, living independently and continuing to inspire others as he has us.”
The project is projected to cost $300,000 and will be privately funded through the generosity of the many donors of the Devon Walker Fund.
Donations for Devon’s Den may be made online.
Roger Dunaway is assistant athletics director for athletics communications.
