Wednesday’s memorial service for fallen bull rider Mason Lowe will live stream online, at the request of Lowe’s family.
According to a release from the PBR, Lowe’s service from the Open Bible Praise Center in Boonville, MO, is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. MT and will be streamed on the PBR website.
The family’s request comes amid an overwhelming outpouring of support for Lowe, an eight-year PBR veteran athlete, who passed away on January 15 as a result of injuries sustained at the PBR event at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO.
In lieu of flowers, fans may donate directly to the Lowe family here. According to a PBR representative over $100,000 has been raised.
“Mason was the love of my life and my best friend,” said Lowe’s wife Abbey in the release. “He loved the sport of bull riding and the family of the PBR. He was loved by his family and friends. Mason had a kind soul and a heart of gold and was always willing to help someone in need. I appreciate all of the prayers and kind words spoken of Mason. He is dearly missed.”
The PBR event in St. Louis on Feb 15-16 has been renamed the Mason Lowe Memorial.
