Miles for Jackies Smiles
We're fundraising on behalf of Boston Children's Hospital because:
Our team, "Miles for Jackie's Smiles" raises money for Nursing Scholarships for Clinical Assistants who work at BCH and are attending school to become a nurse. We have been presenting scholarships for several years and have awarded 20 scholarships to deserving men and woman who wish to become nurses.
We started this in Memory of a dear colleague who was a clinical assistant in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit and Emergency Department, Jackie Jackson Irby. Jackie was working and going to school to become a nurse but she passed away from Breast Cancer before her dream came true. These Scholarships and this team commemorates Jackie's persuit.
Please donate to one of our team members or join our team to help us fulfill dreams of those who wish to become nurses.
