The New England Revolution honored Linda Lory from Bellingham, MA as the Hero of the Match at the team’s home game on Saturday April 20, against the New York Red Bulls. Linda was recognized during a pregame ceremony for her dedication to the New England Aquarium’s Rescue and Rehabilitation Department. She had a sideline view of the Revs pregame warmups and enjoyed the game from the Putnam Club.
Linda is a Marine Biologist with the New England Aquarium’s Rescue and Rehabilitation Department. Each year, she and her team rehabilitate and release hundreds of endangered sea turtles that are suffering from hypothermia and other injuries. The New England Aquarium is leading the way in protecting and researching sea turtles both in the New England region and around the world and Linda plays a major part in the efforts.
