Name: Brady

Age: 8

Days Waiting for a Big: 358

Why I want a Big Brother: “I want a Big Brother to play sports with like baseball, street hockey, basketball, lacrosse and Nascar (to say a few!). I would love to learn how to play ice hockey and have a new friend to do fun stuff with!”

Brady is: a super outgoing child with a big heart, but has his sensitive moments. Brady has a love for sports and is an avid fan of all major league Boston teams! He can tell you more about the greatest plays, players and highlights, and might even quiz you about past super bowls. Brady is also very creative, making up new games and designing his own Nascar track to race his cars!

Top 4 Things:

  • Hang out and play sports!
  • Go to the beach—Brady loves jumping the Sandwich Boardwalk!
  • Winter sledding and making the big jumps! (Brady hopes to learn to ski this winter)
  • Hang out and do a science experiment!

Why Brady Needs a Big: Brady hopes to be a Police Officer or Fire Fighter when he grows up and would love to have a Big from this career field, the Service or Coast Guard. Brady is looking for another strong male presence besides his grandfathers and friends. An ideal Big Brother would be someone who he can chat with, have fun, trust and look up to as he grows. Brady’s mom hopes that his Big will create a memory of a friendship, be on the sideline supporting him and create a bond that will last a life time.

There are 58 boys, in addition to Brady, who are currently waiting to be matched with a Big Brother across the Cape & Martha’s Vineyard—many of who have expressed interest in having a First Responder or Service Member as a Big.
