Our Family…Our Mission
“In Brayden’s Eyes, The Brayden Carr Foundation Inc.”, is a 501(c)(3) non- profit charitable organization established by Jim and Natalie Carr, parents of the late Brayden James Carr. The Big East basketball conference is where Jim called home for the past 14 years. He was a Scarlet Knight staple with the Rutgers University men’s basketball program through various positions. Jim is now an assistant coach at the University of Rhode Island. Natalie is a former athletic trainer, coach, local teacher, and most importantly Brayden’s Mommy.
Brayden was an adorable two and a half year old boy who’s beautiful life was much too short. Brayden’s battle remain an inspiration to us and his courage and perseverance is a tribute to the human spirit. Out of horrific tragedy, in May 2011, the Carr family dedicated their lives to honoring their son’s indomitable spirit and infectious enthusiasm for life through positive endeavors. By way of service projects and fundraising ventures, they hope to provide athletic, social, rehabilitative, and academic opportunities to children with seizure conditions and their related physical needs, as well as provide humanitarian support/relief to their parents.
Our foundation has a fully volunteer staff and 100% of the net proceeds go directly into the scholarship fund to help put smiles on many kids’ faces.
Through our love, your support, donations, and our corporate partners, Brayden’s smile will shine on, his laugh will be heard, and his eyes will forever be bright.
Our family thanks you for helping us ensure that Brayden’s spirit lives on..
