Welcome to the


Who We are

The purpose of the GriffStrong16 Fund is to help deserving young men and women who are working to obtain a college education in the field of nursing. 

We are combining two of Matt's loves, Hockey and Nursing, with one helping the other.  Both were a big part of Matt's life. 

In 2016, the GriffStrong16 committee made up of family and friends of Matt put together a memorial hockey tournament in Matt's memory. The  tournament raised money to help fund the GriffStrong16 Scholarship. The outpouring from Matt's friends, his family and the community was overwhelming. In his 26 years, Matt's reach into the world continues to grow. 

The scholarship will be given annually to two High School Seniors from Arlington, MA  who pursuing a nursing degree.
