On Monday, April 14, 2014, The Nathan Chris Baker Foundation granted our first Day of Greatness to Harry O’Sullivan from Sykesville, MD. Harry has been resilient in his fight with cancer while maintaining his positive and upbeat attitude over the last year. Harry is heavily involved with the local community and is a devoted Ravens fan. He and his wife Audrey have been Sykesville residents for the past 27 years.
Yesterday, Harry and his three sons Patrick, Brian, and Chris were able to spend a GREAT day together. A limousine took them for lunch at EW Becks and then they were treated to a private tour of the Under Armour Performance Center and even met Head Coach John Harbaugh. Harry shared last night a statement that blew us away, “When Patrick Gleason, our tour guide, jogged out onto the field to tell Coach Harbaugh about me being honored by The Nathan Chris Baker Foundation… that was the best… then coach asked me about my disease… and I told him… Coach looked me right in the eyes and told me – You are going to beat this… if I was not pumped already that put me over the top”.
A special thanks to Ravens Nest No. 14, especially Mike Naused who nominated Harry, and to Tony Lombardi from Pro Football 24×7 and the Russell Street Report, who helped arrange the tour. We also want to thank Patrick Gleason of the Baltimore Ravens who worked with us to make this day special for Harry as well as all the other Raven players and coaches who took the time to talk with them today! EW Becks is one of Harry’s favorite places and they worked hand in hand with us to make this day special for them. Lastly, we truly appreciate the courteous and prompt service from Bayside Limousine. You all played a special part in making this A GREAT DAY for Harry! We hope that this day was just what Harry and his family needed.
We are over the top excited to put this great idea into action and so pleased to see smiles on Harry and his sons faces! What a GREAT first Day Of Greatness!!!
