Heroes Among Us

The Heroes Among Us award is a program of the Boston Celtics, presented by the Mass State Lottery.

As Aislynn Rodeghiero learned of many suburban families struggling with the basic necessities and nowhere to turn for support, she was determined to do something! To address this problem, Aislynn founded a non-profit entitled The Abundant Table in 2003.

Designed to confidentially provide meals, non-perishable food and other necessities to families in need, The Abundant Table has become a charitable force now serving hot meals for over 100 individuals every week. To date, Aislynn and her team of 50 volunteers have incredibly served over 20,000 meals to families in need!

December 8, 2009 - Garrett Burgess

Heroes Among Us

The Heroes Among Us award is a program of the Boston Celtics, presented by the Mass State Lottery.

At the age of four, Garrett Burgess was in a car accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down and confined to a wheelchair. Only six years later, Garrett and his father embarked on a cross-country fundraising trip that amazingly raised over $50,000 to help others with spinal cord injuries.

In 2008, Garrett lost his sight during an operation to repair a curve in his spinal column, but even that has not slowed his dedication to others. 16 year old Garrett is an active spokesman for children with disabilities and is actively working with the Travis Roy Foundation to help raise awareness.

For his inspiring dedication and impact at such a young age, please welcome tonight's Hero Among Us, Garrett Burgess!
