Just Checking In Fund

Just Checking In Fund

The Just Checking in Fund was established by Mary Waldron in memory of her late husband John, who passed away in 2012 from complications related to a routine knee surgery. John was well known for his fundraising on behalf of school sports programs and clubs. John always “checked in” with family and friends, neighbors, and many times even complete strangers in need. After John's sudden passing, wiffleball was chosen as the ideal platform to honor his memory due to its fun and inclusive nature. 

The annual John Waldron Memorial Wiffleball Tournament is now in its 6th year and 100% of all funds raised go to the Just Checking In Fund which provides scholarships to Brockton High School Alumni and other charities that John supported, including the Boys & Girls Club of Brockton, BHS Musical, BHS Football Alumni, TOPS soccer program, Old Colony YMCA, One Fund, Red Cross, Jingle Bell Run, Epilepsy Foundation, Polish White Eagles Scholarship Fund, BHS Golf Team, Brockton Hospital Cancer Walk, Frederick Douglass Neighborhood Association and many more. 

In 2017, the Boys & Girls Club of Brockton became the official 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor of the Just Checking In Fund. Our Club community is excited for this new partnership and looks forward to supporting the Fund for years to come.
