Grant Fieldon Brown, born August 31, 2006, was a vibrant, healthy six year old boy who was full of energy, joy and curiosity. His life was an adventure.
Grant was a passionate member of the New Covenant School Kindergarten community in Arlington, Massachusetts. In the spring of 2013, Grant pledged to run 10 laps in the school’s annual Jogathon fundraiser. He more than doubled his goal, logging 22 laps (the most in his class) and the picture to the left shows the happy, fun-loving boy that he was on that day.
On July 22, 2013, the unthinkable happened at a supervised day camp where swimming was part of the day. Grant left his family, grabbed the hand of Jesus and walked right into Heaven the next evening. Now Grant is running on Streets of Gold and we have the complete surety that he's enjoying the unimaginable and the humanly indescribable promises of Heaven.

The Running on Streets of Gold virtual 5K run & walk is being organized annually by family friends to remember Grant and to support a scholarship in his name for students at New Covenant School, the school that Grant loved so much. Helping others is a value that Grant was taught and understood. When you participate, you are keeping those important values alive.
