In Memory of Katie and Wilson
Each year our foundation holds multiple events and fundraisers so that we can donate back to the community. Each year we look for unique ways to donate to the community that meant so much to Katie and Wil.
The Katie and Wil Brady Trail
The Community came together to make The Katie and Wil Trail at Marshy Point Nature Center a reality. Together with our supporters we were able to donate $107,000.00 towards the construction of this wonderful trail.
The Katie and Wil Brady Memorial Foundation has found continued support from the Fallston Fins. Thanks to the swim school’s annual Swim-a-thon and continued yearly donations the Katie and Wil Brady Trail at Marshy Point Nature Center has received new benches along the trail.
