I'm participating in Yoga Reaches Out because I want to help Boston Children's Hospital continue its amazing work for kids and families. During this day-long yogathon, more than 1,200 yogis will come together for an inspirational day of yoga, music, and fundraising - all to help bring peace and healing to others.
When my granddaughter, Zoey, was in the hospital after she was born having heart and lung surgery, I saw the toll it took on my daughter, Katie, and the whole family. She was there for weeks, sleeping in a chair, away from her son, eating fast food and staying strong for her baby. It was brutal, and yet it happens to so many families all the time. Through the efforts of Yoga Reaches Out, families and patients at Children's are taken care of and given some space to breathe during their stay, and in my opinion, that's worth gold!
This year donations will benefit Boston Children's Wellness Program and Every Child Fund.
Support me in helping give strength to families coping with a sick child.
