We are pleased to welcome our special guests, Pat Freiermuth #88, TE and Tayla Racca, singer/ songwriter.

He wants to help support Reid's Rebels and make a difference in the world of leukemia for his former teammate. This was a no brainer especially since the Steelers were Reid's favorite NFL team of all time!
Tayla Racca is a singer/songwriter and music therapist. Tayla also graduated Pentucket High School with Reid and was one of his good friends, she will be singing an original song that she both wrote and recorded just recently in Nashville, TN.

It was awe inspiring to see the Boston Commons lit up with these beautiful lanterns to honor, survivors (white), current fighters, (red) and in memory of, (gold)-REID💛 We will be rolling out next year’s campaign at our Night of Giving next June 12th, 2020 (please save the date)you don’t want to miss being a part of something so special💛
