few others swam in the ocean last month to raise money and awareness of the Doucette cause.
A Hollis man presented a $10,000 check Saturday to Cooper Doucette, the Nashua student who was paralyzed during football practice in September.
He also presented Doucette with autographed photographs of Eric Winston, an offensive tackle for the Houston Texans, and Micky Ward, the famous boxer from Lowell, Mass., about whom the movie "The Fighter" was based. Doucette also received gift certificates from the 99 Restaurant, Ruby Tuesday, Papa Gino's Pizzeria, Little Caesar's, Monro Muffler Brake and Service, Hampshire Hills and Wendy's.
Keefe has been raising money for specific causes and people since 2007. That year, he raised almost $24,000 for Keith McLaughlin and his seven children, of Westford, Mass., after Keith's wife, Tammy, died unexpectedly.
they've already arranged plans to have the Nashua Silver Knights, the local baseball team in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League, host a "Pay It Forward for Cooper Doucette Night" this summer where much of the game's proceeds will go to Doucette.

"It was great," Keefe said of the fundraising effort, which took place over several months. "It really was quite a kick; we got a charge at Jordan Hats For Boys the end on Thursday and Friday to put us over $10,000."
He read Doucette's story and decided to help. He said his family has met with the Doucettes and considers them "friends."
Ray Keefe and his family gave Doucette the check for $10,170 after their largest fundraising event, a raffle for Boston Red Sox tickets when the team plays the New York Yankees in April.
