    MIAMI -- The Haitian earthquake relief fund founded by Alonzo Mourning and Dwyane Wade has received initial pledges of well over $800,000 from at least 27 professional athletes, including LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Michael Vick and Gilbert Arenas.

    Wade's donation was a one-game salary, about $175,000. Mourning, James, Durant and Paul each pledged $100,000.

    Mourning spent about 36 hours in Haiti last week, working at a makeshift hospital and trying to assist rescue workers and first responders in the devastated capital Port-au-Prince get badly needed supplies such as water, food and medical equipment.

    Mourning and Wade are calling their venture the "Athletes Relief Fund for Haiti" and began soliciting donations Friday.
