Grafton Little League Honors One of Their Own

With a new Spring season getting underway soon, we are attempting to raise $50,000 for the Martin Richard Foundation. I’m rallying support from other Little League’s across Maryland. Would you please consider sending this email to other communities in District 6?

 

Martin Richard was the 8 year old boy from Dorchester, MA killed last year in the Boston Marathon bombings. Martin played for Savin Hill Little League and he loved baseball. His sister Jane lost a leg in the bombings, his mom Denise suffered severe hearing and sight loss and Martin’s dad suffered injuries to his legs and hearing loss. In January, 2014, the Richard family launched ‘The Martin Richard Foundation’ to honor Martin’s memory and to support athletic, educational and community endeavors. Personally, I am running the marathon this year to honor Martin and his family. My youngest son was the same age as Martin and we had 40 boys playing in GLL last year the same age as Martin. The tragedy struck a nerve with me and many others involved in Little League Baseball. You see, Grafton is only 45 miles away from Dorchester. The Boston Marathon is a big deal for the locals. We all have either run the marathon, know someone who ran it or have cheered on runners as innocent spectators. The Richard’s family were innocent spectators before their lives changed forever. It is why I’m doing what I can to help the family. I’m hoping your Little League’s in Maryland will get involved to help as well.

 

Grafton Little League is asking other Little League’s to help in 3 ways.

 

1.            Hold a moment of silence for Martin Richard at your Opening Day Parade. Then pass the hat at the parade asking parents and supporters to support the Martin Richard Foundation. Contact Bill Keeler, Grafton Little League President at 508 414-7755 with questions.

2.            Post a message on your league website pointing parents and supporters of your Little League to contribute a donation to the ‘YouGiving’ website that Grafton Little League has set up. We’re on our way with more than $14,500 already raised. http://www.youcaring.com/memorial-fundraiser/grafton-little-league-organizes-martin-richard-fundraiser/152379

3.            Send an email to your league database asking parents to support your league’s effort to help raise monies for The Martin Richard Foundation. Use the link above in your communications. For those parents not wanting to make an online donation, checks can be written to: The Martin W Richard Foundation. Mail them to: c/o Grafton Little League, PO Box 471, North Grafton, MA 01536.

 

Little League International is supporting this fundraising effort and they wrote an article on the endeavor.
