William Johnson Memorial Fund

William was born in 1995 with a rare life-threatening congenital heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Due to surgery complications he was severely handicapped, non-verbal, and required many services in the form of therapies and special education. Sadly, at the age of 12, William’s heart could no longer keep up with the demands of his growing body and he passed away. An annual autumn Run/Walk was established in his memory with proceeds going to the William Johnson Memorial Fund. The fund provides an annual scholarship to a Baldwinsville senior pursuing a degree in the field of special education, physical therapy, speech pathology, occupational therapy, music therapy or vision therapy. The fund has  also benefited the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
