TIM'S TEAM

TIM'S TEAM


Thank you for your interest in the
Timothy O'Connell Foundation.

Timothy O’Connell, in whose honor and loving memory the Foundation was established in 2008, courageously battled acute myeloid leukemia between May 2007 and his death on September 9, 2008, just two days after his tenth birthday.  His loving spirit and warm smile will always live with those who were lucky enough to know him. 

From the very first days of Tim's diagnosis, family, friends, members of the Holliston, Massachusetts community, and others who were touched by Tim's strength and courage offered to make donations in tribute, ultimately resulting in the organization of the Foundation.  This website has been established to raise awareness of The Timothy O'Connell Foundation and its goals. 

Since its organization, The Timothy O'Connell Foundation has granted over $400,000 in gifts to worthy cancer-related causes, and has awarded more than $32,000 in scholarships to students pursuing health-related fields of study.

September 10-11, 2016   |  Timmy Cake Sales

Thank you to all those who purchased one of the 300 cakes baked by Joanne and our incredible team of bakers and helpers. Special thanks to Charlie Jacobs and the Warren Center, Fr. Mark Coiro and St. Mary's Parish, and Tom Clarke and Clarke Kitchen Resource Center for their generous permission to use their respective facilities for our cake sale event!


The generosity of so many in Holliston and surrounding communities who give to The Timothy O’Connell Foundation by buying a cake at our September cake sale fundraiser, by running in Tim’s Trot, by supporting the Foundation’s Boston Marathon runners, and by volunteering their time for these and other events, has enabled the Foundation to make two major gifts again this year. The Foundation has now granted more than $75,000 to Make-A-Wish of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. We look forward to sponsoring more wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses.
