Day of Service at Carter School
Recently we held a Day of Service to prepare the Carter School for the Summer Program. It was a lot of fun putting on our gardening gloves, and working together to spiff up the Sensory Garden. We’ll be back in the Fall.
Thanks to all of you, in the Spring we were able to donate $10,000 to the Carter School to update the sensory garden with new tables and updated water fixtures. The students and staff at Carter school were thrilled!
Batter Up for the Challengers League ⚾️
Team Victoria McGrath Foundation was delighted to be a sponsor for the Westport Challengers League, where children with disabilities play a full season of baseball with the help of buddies.
Thank you for your donations which make this possible!
Boston Marathon Weekend
On Marathon Weekend we ran for children with special needs and their families. We met our goal to sponsor 5 families with special needs to attend a refreshing week at Joni and Friends Family Retreat, and made a meaningful contribution to updating the sensory garden at the Carter School in Boston.
Joni and Friends Family Retreats offer a haven for special needs families where they are encouraged and rejuvenated in a fully accessible camp environment. Families look forward to this respite for 51 weeks a year.
The Carter School is a Boston Public School located on the border of Boston’s Lower Roxbury and South End neighborhoods. Ranging in age from 12 to 22, Carter students have both severe, intensive disabilities and complex health needs. The school is a bright haven for children and their families. In the sensory garden, students learn, play, and plant vegetables in a quiet protected place.
Thanks for running with us, and supporting our runners!
Cinco de Mayo Party
Thanks for joining us at the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the Bell in Hand Boston to raise funding for the Carter School in Boston. The Carter School educates children with severe, intensive disabilities.
Together, we raised $10,000 to update the sensory garden. Thanks to our amazing sponsors and all of you that attended to the event and volunteered!
Let’s make this an annual event!
