A Weekend for Will

The Brave Will Foundation was thrilled to be part of the Children’s Miracle Network Radio and Telethon this weekend to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. On Friday, we did radio interviews on both 810 WGY and The River 99.5. It was an honor to be able to share Will’s story with the listeners, and were touched by the kind words expressed by hosts Chuck Custer (WGY) and Randi and Tred (The River). If you are interested in hearing the interview from WGY, you can click on the link below. On Sunday, we took the boys to the telethon on Fox 23 to answer phones and take donations. Ben worked very hard on the phones to raise as much money as he could in two hours. Max, on the other hand, lasted about fifteen minutes, but apparently had a great time in the control room spinning around in circles on a chair 🙂 While we there, Fox 23 showed the beautiful video about Will that they produced for last year’s telethon and then interviewed us so that we could talk about the foundation and the great work that we have started. Congratulations to Albany Med, WGY, The River, and Fox 23 for raising over $2.5 million over the weekend to help all those children in need–superb!

Thank you to the Albany Medical Center Foundation for allowing us to be a part of the weekend or for giving us lots of opportunities to promote our foundation and of course, talk about our little angel Will. A weekend like that really lifts our spirits and reminds us again just how powerful the life and legacy of our Brave Will continues to be.
