The Super Heroes 4 Mason Fund was established to honor the life of Mason Sturms. At 4 years of age, Mason had an unusual sense of compassion and caring for other children. In the weeks leading up to his untimely death, Mason was collecting loose change to buy toys for others less fortunate than he was. This fund, established by his parents Ralph and Erin, will be used to continue Mason’s mission to help others.
