Hello 2017!!

Hello 2017!!

Wow 2016. You made it reeeeeealllllly hard to like you. Like real hard. You took a cue from the end of 2015 when we received Graham’s Fragile X diagnosis and you kept the hits on coming. We were only 4 days in, just getting to know you, and you delivered the hardest news we’ve ever gotten: Reid had also tested positive for Fragile X. .

1st Annual Bocce Tournament

Our Village Continues to Grow! Love and support were in the air on July 31st when the Medford Boat Club hosted its 1st Annual Bocce Tournament donating every dollar raised to The Pierce Family Fragile X Foundation. The event was attended by nearly 100 people including Mayor of Medford, Stephanie Muccini Burke, Pastor of St. Raphael's Parish, Fr. Paul Coughlin, former principal of St. Raphael School, Sister Maureen Doherty and many others. We raised over $6,000 at this event. We are so thrilled with the results and are forever grateful by the generosity of the Medford Boat Club, its members and the community we are happy to call home. Thank you to all who made this tremendous day a success!
