On the Field at Fenway Park – was held Thursday, May 10th at 9:00a.m. with almost 100 people attending. The event went off without a hitch and was greatly enjoyed by participants and volunteers. Additionally, fifteen-year-old Lacey-Mae, a patient at the Feingold Center for Children, received the Latham Award. The Latham award is given to a patient who in the face of serious health concerns has maintained a positive outlook and embodies the “spirit” and character of the child for whom the award was named. Learn more about Lacey-Mae’s advocacy for Dwarfism Awareness and Anti-Bullying on her Facebook page: “Peace By Piece”.
