White plains rfc presents:
The 27th annual matthew "JoJo" Moore Fundraiser
& golf outing
Matthew “JoJo” Moore, an original member of White Plains RFC, has been a quadriplegic since suffering a severe spinal injury in 1991 while playing in an Old Boys Rugby match. White Plains RFC has held an annual event ever since to honor JoJo, his wife Peggy, and their family, while at the same time celebrating rugby, friendship and good cheer among all who come to play and watch.
Prior to his accident, JoJo was a physical education and health teacher, wrestling coach, and swimming coach in the Peekskill School System. In addition, he served as a New York State softball umpire, volleyball official, volunteer fireman, and church deacon—and raised four daughters.
JoJo returned to teaching and coaching less than 2 years after his accident and earned another Masters Degree. Since retiring from full time teaching, he has continued to coach wrestling and serves as a volunteer health teacher at a small private school. He is a vibrant member of the community and role model for all who meet him. He and Peggy are the proud grandparents of 5 beautiful grandchildren.
