On Sunday, June 9, I’ll be participating in the Eversource Walk for Kids for Boston Children’s Hospital, and I’d appreciate your support.
Since its inception in 2003 the Walk has raised more than $20 million for Boston Children’s. Your donation can help deliver life-saving care, propel promising research, and provide the special touches that let kids be kids.
If you ask yourself, “Why should I give?” here are some areas that your gift can support:
World-class research – BCH is the largest research enterprise at a pediatric hospital with 330 current clinical trials underway
Clinical innovation – BCH has turned off the genetic switch that causes sickle cell disease (getting closer to a cure) and discovered new therapy for recurrent leukemia using the patient’s own cells
Life-changing care – BCH is ranked #1 in 7 out of 10 evaluated specialties and serves children from 50 states and 100 countries
And the hospital doesn't just stop there. Boston Children's really understands the importance of training the next generation of top pediatricians and nurses, so they can continue to provide the best, most innovative care possible to kids.
I've been doing this Walk since 2007; sadly, my knees have relegated me to the 2-mile walk this year (to quote Mick Jagger, "What a drag it is getting old!"), but it's still worth it because of all the good BCH does for children. I hope to raise $500 (that can provide 2 weeks of patient-family housing for those who travel far for care). When you make a donation to support me in the Eversource Walk for Kids for Boston Children’s Hospital, you contribute to keeping kids healthy.
