HOPE Week continued today with a special event for George and Kim Murray of South New Berlin, N.Y.

George, a 38-year-old veteran of the Army’s 82nd Airborne who no longer has use of his arms and legs due to ALS, wanted to watch a game a Yankee Stadium with the couple’s 4-year old son, Trason. The Yankees also arranged for a surprise anniversary party for the Murrays with Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Phil Hughes, Phil Coke, Hideki Matsui, Brian Bruney and Cody Ransom joining 40 members of their family and friends in a suite at the Stadium prior to the game.

Following the game, the Murray family was taken on a private tour of Yankee Stadium with Jeter, Teixeira, Coke and Ransom.

Here are some photos provided by the Yankees of the event. Once again, more good work by the organization.
