I couldn't be more excited to be a part of Yoga Reaches Out this year. Our tribe is fundraising for Boston Children's Hospital (Wellness Program and Every Child Fund) which truly does amazing work for kids and families from all over the country. 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. I can not wait.
When signing up for YRO, I had no idea which organization we were fundraising for. It makes my OT and NICU mama heart so happy. I have been connected to Boston Children's in one way or another over the last 14 years of practicing in pediatrics. Personally, I am so grateful for the superior Boston hospitals, NICU's, and amazing nurses. When our first born was born at 33.5 weeks after 4 weeks of in-hospital bedrest, we gained a new appreciation for this process and lived the days of overwhelm and exhaustion. Our sweet little love was born at 5 lbs with determination and persistence. After 21 days, we went home as a family and were able to breathe easy by settling into our daily routines with a newborn.
I'd be honored to have your support and love for this event. Your support in helping give strength to familes coping with a sick child means the world.
I am so grateful for you and your generosity!
