|Matt died in a car accident on May 23, 2009 on Totoket Road in North Branford. Matt's Mission 5K run will honor Matt’s memory, increase awareness that encourages people to slow down and to drive safe, while supporting Matt’s Mission Fund. |
Matt’s family feel it is important to give back to their community. They want everyone to know how much they appreciate all the love and support shown to them after Matt’s death.
The goal of Matt’s Mission Fund is to help students from North Branford in need. Matt’s Mission will work closely with the Guidance Department and teachers to help provide relief to students and their families. Our intent is to raise money for whatever is warranted in any student’s time of need. It is realized that every family situation is different. Some students need the basics; clothes, a coat, shoes, school supplies etc. Many families struggle to afford the basic necessities and the extra's at times can be overwhelming. Matt's Mission Fund would love to provide relief to students in need for the added expense of class dues, field trips, or sport shoes and attire. Whatever is needed! The goal is simple… to reach out and show students and their families right here in North Branford that we care about our neighbors. Matt’s family said he wanted to make a difference. Their hope is that Matt's Mission Fund will do just that.
