This year, on April 28, I will join over 1,000 yogis during a day-long yogathon in order to raise funds for the Wellness Program and the Every Child Fund at Boston Children's Hospital. Each donation directly helps families and patients, specifically by funding critical services not covered by insurance and by providing housing for families traveling far for care.
Since 2014, I've been fortunate to meet countless patients and families, and engage with dedicated teams of physicians, nurses, and support staff as a researcher within the Departments of Cardiology, Anesthesiology, and Critical Care Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital. These interactions have continually demonstrated the power of empathy, resilience, and perseverance. Outside of work, in my daily yoga practice at Corepower Yoga, these same traits are tested. My experiences both on and off the mat have allowed me to gain a greater appreciation for my own health and wellness, and have driven me to want to further support the strides made at Children's every day.
Any donation amount will make a difference! Please consider supporting my Yoga Reaches Out Fundraiser this year to help give strength to families coping with a sick child. To my fellow CPY yogis, consider showing your support by joining my team and practicing alongside me at this event!
