Brown University Men’s Hockey, along with Team IMPACT, which is a national nonprofit organization that connects children facing life-threatening or chronic illnesses with the support system of college sports teams, honored an eight-year-old boy battling a rare disease.

A press release noted that Harry Borodemos, a second grader from Fall River, has juvenile myositis, a rare and life-threatening autoimmune disease.

But on Monday, the Brown men’s hockey team appointed Harry as an official member of the team. They gave him a locker and gear, as well as invited him to attend practices, games, events, and more.

Way to go, Harry!
