Ridgewood resident Michael Feeney died on Black Friday 2013 after a four-year battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a pediatric bone cancer. He was 10 years old. Throughout his short, but big, life Michael showed enormous courage. Michael was never without a smile, and he inspired all who knew him.
To honor Michael, his parents are holding a fundraiser, “The 1st Annual Michael Feeney’s Best Day Ever” at BF Middle School in Ridgewood on June 21, the first day of summer, on what would have been Michael Feeney’s 11th birthday.
This event is truly created with Michael in the details. From the food, to the games, to the music, to the charitable donations, there is nothing here that would not make Michael happy. It will be a fun and rewarding time for all involved.
The day will kick off with a Color Fun Run, then a balloon and butterfly release, followed by a huge carnival.
The event will run from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Net proceeds will be donated to the Go for the Goal Foundation, and the newly created Chief Michael Feeney Junior Police Academy.
Registration at the door will be $25pp/ $70 per family. No t-shirts will be available at the event. You can register for the event locally at Bookends, Ben & Jerry’s, Backyard Living and Leapin’ Lizard or register online at https://register.communitypass.net/ridgewood. You can also make a donation online.
Please support this fundraiser created to honor and remember one of Ridgewood’s finest citizens.
