Karen Phelps Moyer, a 1987 University of Notre Dame graduate, and her husband, Jamie Moyer, a pitcher for the Seattle Mariners, will receive the Family Exemplar Award from the Notre Dame Alumni Association during a ceremony at the Notre Dame-Pittsburgh football game Saturday (Nov. 13).
The Family Exemplar Award is presented annually to an individual, couple or family that has made an impact on society, the Church, politics, athletics or personal lifestyle, as related to family values.
The Moyers established The Moyer Foundation in July 2000 to assist children and families enduring profound physical, emotional or financial distress, and to enhance the quality of life for cancer patients and their families. Since its inception, The Moyer Foundation has raised more than $6 million and assisted more than 100 organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest. Karen and Jamie Moyer are active participants in the foundations fund-raising activities, often opening their home to events.
Karen Phelps Moyer is the daughter of Notre Dame Law School professor Teresa Godwin Phelps and former Irish basketball coach Digger Phelps.
Jamie Moyer has pitched in the major leagues since 1986 and has a career record of 192-145.
