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.
