Morris boy selling vegetables to benefit a cause
Young Charlie Groht of Morris is setting out to accomplish his goals of being a farmer and finding a cure for ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Charlie, 7, is doing quite by selling vegetables he grows at his home to raise money for the ALS Therapy Development Institute in memory of his mother’s uncle Bob, who died of ALS.
Charlie is selling his produce at a stand in front of his home in Isaiah Smith Lane and at the Four Corners on Saturdays. He is assisted in the garden by his sister, Patty. Both are supported by their parents, Jeffrey and Margie.
Groht relatives have raised about $60,000 for the ALS cause by participating in the Tri-State Trek, a grueling 270-mile bicycle ride from Boston to Greenwich.
