A Minute. A Memory. A Lifetime.

 

Mission

Memories have the potential to lift people up when they need it most.  At Minutes for Memories we realize that it only takes a few minutes to create memories that will last a lifetime.

About Us

Minutes for Memories was founded in 2011 after Addison Russell, a young man with unlimited potential and drive to succeed, was stopped in his tracks by a tragic tubing incident. Accidents happen in the blink of an eye and Minutes for Memories strives to not let that one moment define the rest of a person's life. We lend a helping hand to those in need of assistance, a smile, or just a friend to get them through tough times.  Minutes for Memories understands that a few minutes of someone's time can provide memories for a lifetime and motivation to continue pushing towards a bright future. 

MFM creates lasting memories for children 5-25 who have sustained long term injures. We do this by allowing them to find enjoyment in something they liked prior to their injury.  Our goal is to showcase that their injuries do not define them and they can still live a full life. Whether it is going to a Red Sox game, watching a play or enjoying the latest movie or video game, MFM wants children to see the bright side of things.

Quote of the Week: 

"After an injury, it’s easy to think, 'I used to be this or I used to be that...' but you are still that person, you still experienced those things, and you still can experience those things. I used to be a runner and I am still a runner. I used to be a dancer and I am still a dancer. And it makes me feel good to know that."
