MetzWood Service Advisor Jamie Leader lost her 12-year-old brother Jason to neuroblastoma in 1994. During his lengthy stay within the hospital, the Jimmy Fund, an official charity of the Boston Red Sox, fulfilled a wish he always dreamt about. A big Boston Red Sox fan, Jason met team player Mo Vaughn and threw the first pitch at the major league teams’ game.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity the Jimmy Fund gave to my brother during a very difficult time,” said Jamie. “It’s wonderful to be able to give back to a similar organization like Make-A-Wish®, and I’m very proud to work for an agency that’s so passionate about supporting the community.”
In 2022, MetzWood’s charitable referral program will support Girls on the Run Upstate New York. The organization aims to inspire young girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident through a fun curriculum that integrates running.
