The Yoga Reaches Out fundraiser is dear to my heart because of our connection to Boston Children's Hospital. Our daughter Marlee was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in her freshman year of college. Her blood sugar levels were so high, she required immediate hospitalization at Boston Children's. After a few days of caring treatment and expert Diabetes education, she began managing her condition beautifully. Not only did she finish her freshman year, but thanks to her ongoing treatment and counsel from the Children's Hospital Outpatient Endocrinology team, she independently traveled to Japan, Israel and graduated from college as an art teacher. Boston Children's Hospital set the stage for Marlee to go after any dream she visualizes for herself. This hospital helps so many other families and their children who have dreams of their own.
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.
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.
