On April 15, 2013, Nicole and Michael Gross, and Nicole’s sister, Erika Brannock, stood innocently at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. They had traveled to Boston to cheer on their mom, who had been training for months to run in this storied event. Athletes themselves, they knew how difficult the marathon was and how much their support would mean to their mom. As they searched the crowd of runners, a series of explosions went off without warning, killing and injuring indiscriminately. Unfortunately, Nicole, Michael, and Erika were all injured in the first explosion.
Nicole, Michael, and Erika escaped with their lives, but they each have long roads to recovery. While we know they will succeed, the road ahead will be arduous and the cost of recovery great. To help them along their journey, we have established the Be Strong Stay Strong Fund TM. We are now asking for your support to assist Nicole, Michael and Erika by contributing to the Fund. 100% of donations will assist the Gross and Brannock family with their medical, physical and emotional needs, as well as lost income and unexpected expenses during their recovery. Unfortunately, contributions, while good for the soul, are not tax deductible.
