Flag Football at Gillette Stadium

On Sunday, November 17th, the Flag Football games were a huge success at Gillette Stadium.  The kids did a great job handling the long day, and managed the weather (it started to rain the last couple hours) without issue. We won 1 of our 3 games, but all the kids played and the team spirit was amazing. We placed fourth in our division.  

All the kids did a great job and I couldn’t be more proud of them.  In the lead up to the competition, the students made it to all of the practices and supported each other. We were lucky enough this year to see and give high fives to several of the Patriots. Bob Kraft came out, and even Tom Brady spoke to the kids. This year the Patriots were heading off for an away game that would be seen on Monday Night Football but they took time to come out and say hi. All of us were so excited that the kids and staff got to see them. It was a dream come true for all of us!!!

Thank you Mary Ware for your amazing help throughout the season, and jumping in to play when we needed her.  You’re an amazing leader and I’m so grateful for all your support. Thank you to Alanna Murphy and Emily Mann for coming to support the kids, and giving us a helping hand. They stuck with us all day, and it made the kids so happy to see them.  Thank you Barbara for packing all the meds, and having them ready for us.  Thank you again to all of the staff for helping these kids get here. It is an amazing experience I am grateful and honored to be a part of. 

Go Hawks!!!!
