Bravehearts launch memorial fund for daughter of Christopher Roy

The Worcester Bravehearts Baseball Team announced that they have launched a memorial fund for the benefit of the daughter of fallen Worcester Firefighter Christopher Roy.

Roy died while battling a five-alarm fire on Sunday, December 9.

“Like everyone in our community, we were struck by the tragic loss of Firefighter Roy.  We are thinking of Firefighter Roy’s family and especially of his young daughter at this time.  Our organization was named the ‘Bravehearts’ in honor of Worcester’s uniformed heroes such as Christopher Roy, so this is our call to duty to honor his legacy of bravery,” said Bravehearts’ GM Dave Peterson.

An anonymous Bravehearts’ supporter has pledged to match funds donated dollar for dollar up to the fund’s goal of $5,000. 

Donations may be given through this fund up until 11:59 pm on December 24, 2018. 

Those who wish to support the fund may visit the GoFundMe page.
