About The Greg Hill Foundation:
To celebrate 20 years on the air at WAAF in Boston, Greg Hill formed a foundation in June of 2010 that would respond to the immediate needs of families that had been touched by tragedy. Feeling a strong obligation to communities that had supported his radio show, he wanted to create a foundation that would be able to harness his incredibly generous media audience and that would be able to assist in a tragic time at a moment’s notice.

If you are not able to participate in this event, you can donate to the Greg Hill Foundation here. Be safe, and be well!
