About Max

Max Rosenfield, a 7-year old Ridgefield boy, was an ambassador of friendship, a champion of making sure no one was ever excluded, and a teacher in lessons of the heart. He was kind and sensitive and was instantly loved by all who met him.

Mature for his tender age, young Max baked brownies for play dates, birthdays and celebrations. He encouraged teammates of all abilities on his baseball, basketball and football teams.

Max passed away suddenly on March 14, 2012. His legacy lives on through the Max Michael Rosenfield Foundation.
