Charlie Proctor Memorial Fund

Published on May 13th, 2020

Following the fatal cycling accident of Charlie Proctor, his family has established a fund to support advocacy for safer roadways, in the hope that no others need to suffer through the grief and terror that they have. Here is an update from Judy, Ched, and Tom Proctor:


Thank you for being there for us. We are grateful for your support, and your condolences have meant so much to us. It is unimaginably painful to lose a beloved family member so long before his time. Knowing that we have such a loving and supportive community out there is strengthening for us in our grief.

In Charlie’s memory, we have established the Charlie Proctor Memorial Fund with the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition. MassBike works to improve the safety of roadways in the Boston area and across the state of Massachusetts.

We are working closely with them to enact changes to the intersection where Charlie was killed, but unfortunately there are countless other dangerous intersections and roadways like this one.

This fund will support work to improve the safety of roads and intersections around the state before someone else dies on them, and will work towards a future in which no other families need to suffer through the grief and terror that we have.

Because of the current pandemic situation, a traditional memorial where we would be able to see and connect directly with our community is not possible at this time. In lieu of that, we hope that you can contribute to this fund. Contributions can be made online (click here) at or by mailing checks to MassBike, 50 Milk St, 16th Floor, Boston, MA 02109.
