OPTN Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday, April 4th 2015 - 8:30 am - 11:00 am
at NH Sportsplex
68 Technology Drive

We are happy to announce the seventh annual Our Promise to Nicholas (OPTN) Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for April 4th at the NH Sportsplex in Bedford. This popular charitable event — attended by more than 1,200 people last year, raised $20,000 — would not be possible without continued support and donations from community members and businesses like you.

Named after Nicholas Dainiak of Bedford, NH, OPTN was established in 2009 as a non-profit charitable foundation. At age five, Nicholas was diagnosed with the rare genetic brain disorder called Batten Disease. The cruel part of this disease is that these children are vibrant and healthy until it takes its course around the age of four. Eventually Batten takes over the brain, causing a child to die between the ages of eight and twelve.

Sadly, Nicholas lost his battle to Batten on May 9, 2014, on his 11th birthday.

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the seventh annual OPTN Easter Egg Hunt. For more information about this event and additional ways in which you can help, please visit
