I've had the honor of working with Minutes for Memories from its inception in 2011. In it's short life, Minutes for Memories has been able to help a power chair soccer team get started and create a memory at a Red Sox game for an exceptional young man who was injured in a car accident. Getting to continue making these memories is something I look forward to doing. Seeing the happiness on the kids and their families faces makes it all worth it.
