Michael and Brendan Less grew up playing multiple sports in North Salem, and headed off to Keene State in New Hampshire after graduating from high school last June. The brothers recently lost their mother, Terry, who raised them alone after their father died six years ago.

Mitch Lanyi set up a gofundme page that has raised nearly $52,000 to help cover funeral costs and future expenses. Click here to make a contribution.
