The Boston Globe did a great profile of 13-year-old Southborough resident Zach Levine, who has raised almost $11K for the New England Center for Children.
Before starting his fund-raising team Kids Helping Kids, Zach didn’t have any connection with NECC, other than he rode by it every day on his way to school. He wanted to learn more about autism, and then he wanted to help.
“I used to wonder why kids with autism didn’t play sports, but then I learned that some things in their brains don’t function like mine. They need help, but they are just like me. They don’t think anything different from me,’’ said Zach, now 13. “I like to help people who may need some help. To help someone else is the best feeling in the world.’’
