The Story

Bruce Lerch, reporter (and so much more) for the Boston Herald, touched the lives of many--coaches, athletes, families and friends, alike.  Recently diagnosed with cancer, he was taken from our lives far too soon.
A scholarship fund has been set up to honor Bruce’s legacy, to pay respect to his life and his work, and to keep his memory alive. It will recognize select high school athletes that he would have loved getting to know, and watching compete. Bruce did so much to support teams and athletes, and it is now our time to cement his legacy.
There are two ways to donate:
Individuals - Click on the DONATE NOW link on this page*.
Teams- Click on the DONATE NOW link*. The suggested donation for a team, in exchange for forty (40) helmet decals, is $350. We understand that this amount may be simple for a team of 80, and more difficult for a team of 10. This said, please be in touch with any questions or concerns about what to donate. Our only goal is to fund this scholarship, and to get decals to your team. Please note: After donating here online, in order to receive your decals, please email your shipping address to us at [email protected].
*If you'd prefer to pay by check: Please make payable to "The Bruce Fund", and mail to 23 Pantry Road, Sudbury, Ma 01776.

Dear "Friends of Bruce" Supporters,

Last weekend was a memorable one for sure! We had some exciting games in honor of our good friend Bruce Lerch and we were able to raise lots of funds to help honor his legacy!

Our goal from day one has always been to raise enough money to give out a scholarship that would be fitting to honor his work within the sports community. Bruce was always there for us and we want to be there for him!

Our efforts thus far have been substantial and while not all of the donations are in just yet; we know that we are VERY close to making our goal of $100k. To this end, we are asking one last time to Bruce's supporters to consider making one last donation to help us get over the top! Even a small amount will help our cause and get us to where we need to be.

If you would consider a small donation we think this last push will get us there! There are several hundred supporters here and every donation will help! If each person was able to donate an average of $25-$50 we would definitely make our goal!

We should have our final tally out to the public by the middle of next week. This was one of Bruce's favorite times of year, as it will be the start of the Massachusetts Lacrosse high school playoffs!

We thank you again and hope that you would consider a small donation by the end of this weekend.

Best to you all,

Bruce's Friends!
