For the 5th year, I'm participating in Yoga Reaches Out, For the last two years, with Team Shanti because I want to help Boston Children's Hospital continue its amazing work for kids and families.
Boston Children's hospital is dear to my family personally. My daughter, Rebecca had the unfortunate experience of watching her best friend tragically loose her life in this hospital just days shy of her friend's 16th birthday. No friend or parent should have to experience loss. As a way, to honor her friend, Rebecca has devoted her life to service studying to be a pediatric nurse. She is in her Senior year of college.
We have also been connected to far too many families, who have had to sit by their sick child's best side. Feeling helpless, I have made Yoga Reaches Out one of my annual fundraisers.
Boston Children's Hospital is a beacon of hope for many families, offering care they can not get anywhere else, treatment born from breakthrough research and services that nurture the families so they can be their best selves for their sick child. Yoga for families is one of the services.
During this day-long yogathon, more than 1,000 yogis will come together for an inspirational day of yoga, music, and fundraising - all to help bring peace and healing to others.
This year donations will benefit Boston Children's Wellness Program and Every Child Fund.
Support me in helping give strength to familes coping with a sick child.
Namaste and Thank you!
