Bradley F.

Bradley is a high school sophomore in Northfield, N.J. Bradley rows for Fall, Winter, and Spring crew yet he still finds time to serve his veterans and community. In July 2014, Bradley helped devise a multi-year project called Post Crashers, an effort to support veterans by refurbishing their "Posts." Bradley has raised over $125,000 to support veterans, the homeless, and the Community Food Bank. He did this through writing grants and winning honors such Sodexo Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger Award (Regional Finalist). He planted a victory garden that yielded over 1500lbs of fresh vegetables for his community. He has collected thousands of pounds of food for the Food Bank and veterans, made over 1500 lunches for the homeless (funded partly by a Roots & Shoots mini-grant), and hosts informational and advocacy dinners for veterans in need.
