Brophy Alumni Pool Resources to Help Navajo Nation

Hands-on effort sends needed relief to Window Rock

The Navajo Nation now has more COVID-19 cases per capita than any state in the U.S. The population has been hit so hard by COVID-19 that Doctors Without Borders, an organization that sends medical professionals into international conflict zones to assist with medical crises, has dispatched a team to the area.

This set of circumstances has motivated three members of the Brophy Class of 1987, who are all successful Arizona business leaders, to team up to help. Tim Moran, founder of Precedo Capital; Andy Ingram, co-founder of Four Peaks Brewing Company; and Christopher Watts, CEO of Sunstate Equipment, pooled their resources to help collect, pack and deliver pallets of items to the Navajo Nation.

The donations from their three companies, along with Brophy College Prep, the general public, PurM+D and Phat Scooters, included perishable food, bottled water, toiletries and hand sanitizer.

To make the 12-pallet delivery, the Moran and Ingram departed from the Valley at 4 a.m. on May 11, driving a rental truck from Ryder, which donated 800 miles to the effort. After the five-hour drive to Window Rock, they dropped off the donated items and then drove back to the Valley the same day.
