Quincy Medical Group “Moments that Matter” grants wishes for young people facing health issues. Gabriel Baker was honored with his wish to become a Blue Devil. On the Quincy Music Department's Facebook page a video was posted of the Marching Band playing Stand Up and Cheer followed by a parade around the parking lot.

Gabriel also received Blue Devil swag and gifts and the Blue Devil Coin from Mr. Webb. The Moments that Matter program joined the QMG Foundation in 2019 to help honor more people in the community.

In 2021, we took this opportunity to reflect on the past and look to the future of our fund, as many things were put on pause due to the pandemic. Now more than ever, we feel the importance of the everyday moments.

The pure joy on Gabriel's face says it all and the students really stepped up to make him feel like a Blue Devil, great job to everyone to that helped make this happen.
