The New England Patriots have dedicated the 2011 season to the memory of Myra Kraft, the late wife of Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
All year, the team will wear a patch bearing Mrs. Kraft’s initials — “MHK” — on their jerseys. On Sunday, the fans will have a chance to wear her initials on their clothing as well.
The team has announced that 70,000 lapel pins bearing Mrs. Kraft’s initials will be distributed for the home game against the Chargers.
Mr. and Mrs. Kraft were married 48 years, and Mrs. Kraft had a strong influence on the franchise. A limited number of additional pins will be available for a $5 donation to the Myra Kraft Giving Back Scholarship Fund benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.
The pin can be ordered at the team’s online Pro Shop.
