Running on Streets of Gold
It’s with the heaviest of hearts we could ever have that we want to share with you that our precious little Grant Fieldon Brown left our arms, grabbed the hand of Jesus and walked right into Heaven Tuesday night about 10:45 pm. He was attending a supervised day camp on Monday where swimming was part of the day and the unthinkable happened.
Carolynne and I are overwhelmed with disbelief and sadness. The outpouring of prayers from dear friends and families, colleagues, neighbors, ICU staff, friends of friends, and perfect strangers has been immeasurable and has touched us to our core. We are sincerely grateful for each of you and know that our Lord heard every word you offered up to Him. Please help us keep our grip on the cross, even when life is completely shattered.
To God alone be the glory for the beauty, joy, and fun Grant’s life brought to us and so many of you. We’ll provide more information about services in Boston as soon as we can. We covet your continued prayers.
Grant Fieldon Brown graduated from Kindergarten in June 2013 and was looking forward to beginning first grade. He was a well-loved member of the New Covenant School community. Following his tragic death in July, 2013 his family established the Grant Brown Scholarship Fund to honor his memory and legacy. Proceeds from this Fund will help provide an education to NCS students who share Grant’s faith, inquisitiveness, and love of learning.

The 2nd annual Running on Streets of Gold 5K went "virtual" in 2015! To honor Grant's memory, we invite you to participate in the virtual 5K from wherever you are in 2016. A date will be determined later. "Like" the Streets of Gold 5k Facebook page for updates.
Grant's life has touched people who now live all over the world and the virtual format gave everyone an opportunity participate. This year, runners from 35 different states and 15 different countries ran the Streets of Gold 5K. If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all those that ran!
As a way to celebrate and honor his life, we started The Grant Brown Memorial Golf Tournament, and over the last two years - thanks to the generosity of so many - we raised a significant amount of money for his family as they build the Grant Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund at Grant's school, New Covenant School in Arlington, MA.
