The community showed an outpouring of support for the family of Mahamed mohamud, the 15-year-old boy whose body was pulled from Green Lake Wednesday. A gofundme started by family of Mahamed’s parents has raised over $39,000 of their ask of $18,000 to cover funeral costs.
Mahamed was an energetic, intellegent, and kindhearted 15-year-old boy. He spent his last day with us doing volunteer work, taking his sisters to get ice cream, and visiting his local library.
Almost 600 people have donated at the time of this writing. The gofundme organizer, Ikraam Osman, updated the page, noting, “I’ve notified his parents and they’ve been overwhelmed with all the support.”
