Our Promise to Nicholas Foundation Indoor Maze to the Egg Hunt and Easter Bunny
Your family will hop along the bunny footprints path in a one-way direction through the NH Sportsplex to the Egg Hunt and take photos with the Easter Bunny. This year, there will be between 10,000-15,000 eggs, so there are plenty of eggs for everyone! This event is an annual fundraiser for the Our Promise to Nicholas Foundation, an organization named after Nicholas Dainiak of Bedford. At age 5, Nicholas was diagnosed with a rare genetic brain disorder called Batten Disease. This disease affects an estimated two to four children out of 100,000 born in the United States. Batten causes seizures, blindness, dementia, immobility and eventually requires 24-hour care.
