I've signed on to be a Hope Rider for the Hub on Wheels citywide bike ride because I love riding and love Boston Children's Hospital even more. As some of you know, my daughter Noa had a tough beginning and I am forever grateful for the amazing care that she received at Children's. Thanks in part to them, she has grown into the healthy, amazing kid that you all know (or have seen endless pictures of). Laura and I often marvel how lucky we are to have one of the world's best children's hospitals less than half an hour away from our home. People come from all over the world to see Noa's doctors and nurses.
On September 16th, I’ll join thousands of cyclists for this family friendly ride through the Boston neighborhoods – including on a car-free Storrow Drive – all to raise critical funds for pediatric cancer research at Boston Children’s. From the birth of modern chemotherapy to the discovery that tumors need their own blood vessels to grow, Boston Children’s Hospital researchers don’t just improve cancer treatment—they introduce new chapters in cancer medicine. Fundraising plays an instrumental role in keeping scientists moving forward and 100% of your donation goes to directly to helping kids.
I will be doing the 40 mile emerald necklace ride. I hope that in a few years I will do the 10 mile ride with Noa on her own bike.
Sick kids and their families deserve the best care so please help me support Boston Children's Hospital.
