Montclair Marathon Row
June 3 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Please join us on June 3rd, as we row and fundraise but to also honor all organ donors like Tom who donated to help save another life.
On October 17th 2022, my lifelong friend Tom Haynes collapsed with little to no warning signs due to a bleed on the brain. Despite the best efforts of everyone around him, Tom never regained consciousness and tragically passed away two days later at just thirty years old.
Tom was such an incredible guy. An absolutely infectious soul to be around and brought a smile to everyone’s face. It was always easy to see that he really was everyone’s best friend. With his outrageous eyebrows and a laugh that resembled yogi bear, he will forever be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.
Tom leaves behind a legacy worthy to call him a hero. In his passing, Tom is responsible for saving six lives because he made sure he was a registered organ donor.
Tom is the inspiration behind this event as we work together to fundraise for the The Bee Foundation. Their charity specializes in researching brain aneurysms, looking for early signs of detection and methods of prevention to hopefully help put an end to such brain abnormalities.
