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.  The results of this fundraiser will determine what exactly that will be, however we have hopes to do something very special for many children to enjoy for years to come.

A small portion of the funds may also be used to assist in Sloane's recovery from the accident.

GoFundMe has asked me to add the following information to ensure we are in line with the transparency requirements: My name is Katie McMahon, I am from Sleepy Hollow, New York.  I am Kerri's sister and Sloane and Colin's aunt.  I am organizing this campaign on behalf of the McGrath's.  While we don't know specifically how the funds will be used at this point, we can assure you they will be used to either improve upon an existing park space/playground in South Boston OR create an entirely new one in Colin's name.  As we have more information, we will update this page.
