Thursday, July 20, 2006 was a very tragic day for the Brophy family, and for the Bulldawg nation. Kevin Brophy, then a rising Junior on the Georgia Men's basketball team, was killed in an automobile accident near Greensboro, Georgia. Broph was a beloved leader of the team. His optimism, friendship, and leadership will forever be missed; however, his legacy and story will continue to live on.

In the Fall of 2006, the University of Georgia founded the Kevin Brophy Memorial Basketball Scholarship in Kevin's honor. Thus, the "Do It For Broph 5K Run/Walk" was born. All proceeds benefit the Kevin Brophy Scholarship Endowment Fund.
