Welcome back
Team Maeve The Brave!
Team Maeve The Brave celebrated its first year in 2018 setting fantastic numbers. We came in 5th out of 350 teams for total amount of money raised, which was $15,510. We also came in 2nd for overall attendance at 143 people. Extremely impressive for our first year out.

For this year we hope to raise even more money to help support the NJ Sharing Network and to honor our super hero, Maeve The Brave. We hope you can join us in Long Branch, NJ on Sunday, May 19th for our second appearance.

For those of you who don’t know, Maeve Annette Behan passed away on August 13, 2017, a week shy of her fourth birthday. She always wanted to be a super hero and now she truly is. Maeve saved four lives by donating her organs through the NJ Sharing Network. Maeve’s heart saved a one-year old boy, her liver a one-year old girl and her kidneys saved two adult men. All four recipients are doing well. We are so proud of her strength.

Losing Maeve has been unbearable, but her organ donation has been the rainbow at the end of the storm. Maeve was a beautiful little girl who touched so many lives. She was a firecracker and liked to stomp her foot to get her point across. She was also a very loving child. She loved to cuddle on the couch sucking her thumb and twirling her hair. She is forever in our hearts.

Please join us on Sunday, May 19th to help keep her spirt alive within us all. 

Thank you in advance for your participation and/or donation. Maeve is running right next to us all and is so proud of our efforts.
