When Brady Gleason turned 9, he decided to have his guests bring presents – not for himself but for kids at Children’s Hospital.
Gleason, a third-grader at the Hosmer School, asked each of his friends to bring a soccer ball. His father Shane sent over a photo: “This was the end result – over 30 soccer balls!”
Brady plays soccer for the Watertown U9 Rangers and recently scored the winning goal in the team’s 3-2 win over the Lincoln Geckos, Shane said.
Charity runs in the family. Brady’s brother had a similar party a few years ago, Shane said.
