Over $135,000 raised!

A big “Thank You” to everybody that made Inspire!Boston such a huge success! That was one of the most concentrated shows of enthusiasm, support and generosity that we have seen in our 9-year history! Included in the total amount raised was $32,000 in a 5 minute outpouring of generosity. In those few minutes, everybody in attendance collectively affected more than 10 lives with their generosity. The emotion was incredible.

From Co-chairs of the Host Committee, Rick and Laney Makin: “It was a spectacular event.  The combination of stunning views of the Charles River, a new video of Kelly describing what the KBF is all about, and two grant recipients speaking from the heart, created an environment where both new and loyal KBF supporters showed amazing generosity.  We can’t thank our sponsors enough for the early contributions that allowed the event to gain momentum, and we are still truly stunned by the spontaneous support of many new donors who gifted grants on the spot that evening.  Can’t wait for the 3rdannual!”

We featured a new Kelly Brush Foundation video, telling Kelly’s story and how she turned her injury into a passion for helping others and changing lives.


We also want to thank Kevin and Greg, two great grant recipients that shared their stories with us. We are thrilled to have them as part of the KBF family. You can learn more about them and some of our other grant recipients here:

Finally, we cannot thank our sponsors enough. As Rick and Laney said, their early support provided just the kind of momentum needed to make this event such a big success.
