Seamus’s Field Day
September 7 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
From Greenpoint Williamsburg Youth Soccer League:
This is a memorial celebration and tribute to Seamus Wood. Everyone is invited!
FYI, it’s BYO CLEMENTINES (Seamus loved orange foods!) & WATER BALLOONS (pre-filled) & BIKES (there’ll be a slow bike “race”).
For those who didn’t know Seamus, he had finished 3rd Grade at PS84 last year (2018) just days before falling violently ill while on vacation with his family. At this point last year, the cause of Seamus’ death had not been determined. Seamus’ family has since learned and shared the following explanation: “Seamus’ intestine twisted around his bowel cutting off the circulation. His bowel became gangrenous. The gangrene caused sepsis which triggered a massive organ failure — heart, liver, kidney, brain. In Seamus lingo, an epic fail. All happening in 20 hours during which it looked like a stomach flu.”
Seamus was a gifted athlete and a bright and charming boy who lit up everyone around him. Even if you didn’t have the pleasure of knowing him, please join in the festivities at BIP on Saturday and celebrate the joyous spirit of Seamus.
