North Andover- Matthew Harty NA Scholarship Fund

Wednesday 2/22 at Merrimack College


Come support the North Andover boys Varsity ice hockey team as they compete against Peabody High School at 6:00pm at Merrimack College. Not only is it their senior night, but the game has been dedicated to the memory of Matthew Harty, who passed away 3 years ago fighting mitochondrial disease at the age of 8.  

Matthew was often a "rink rat" supporting his siblings playing hockey and he remains in the hearts of hockey families all over North Andover.  His siblings are, Rebecca a Junior at NAHS and tri-captain for HPNA, Michael a freshman on the JV team, and Gabby a Franklin 5th grader who plays peewee level for NA town program and is also Matthew's twin.

Donation boxes, raffle items, and the fan favorite "chuck-a-puck" will be available during the game and the proceeds will donated to http://www.mitoaction.org/   supporting the Matthew Harty NA Scholarship fund.  The scholarship is awarded to a NA senior who has shown a commitment to special needs children, and will also be awarded to several national candidates who are battling the disease but are committed to advancing their college education.
