Colin's Joy Project

Colin McGrath was taken into heaven on Wednesday, July 25th after a wonderful day in the park.

His life was full of love, laughter, curiosity, and learning. Always playing, singing, dancing, and asking questions, Colin lived every minute of his brief time with us to the fullest. His laughing eyes, beautiful curls, hilarious voice, and sense of adventure will never be forgotten. His smile made everyone's heart happy.

Colin leaves behind his best friend and partner in crime, Sloane. These two spent countless hours on the playground at various parks around South Boston. We pray his spirit lives on in each of us forever. One way Kerri, Brendan and Sloane would like to do this is by completing a project in his name at one of the local South Boston parks.

Colin’s Joy Project at the Boston Foundation will be used to make grants that will create special places in their South Boston neighborhood that many children may enjoy for years to come.

Checks may be made payable to The Boston Foundation with “Colin’s Joy” in the memo line, and mailed to the attention of Fund Administration, The Boston Foundation, 75 Arlington Street, Boston, MA 02116.
