I'm participating in Yoga Reaches Out because I want to help Boston Children's Hospital continue its amazing work for kids. 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.
MY STORY: When I was a 9 years old I was able to recieve no-cost-care related to a birth defect on my foot. Although it wasn't from Boston Children's Hospital, I am forever grateful that the surgery and follow-up care were provided to me for no cost and that accomodations were provided to my family so they could be with me during my one month stay. At this time in our lives, my family was in no way capacble of paying for this care, and without it I may not be able to walk today and may never have found my sincere love and appreciation for Yoga. (I'll be a certified yoga teacher in May!!) Helping to ensure care for EVERY child that needs it and support for their family members is very near and dear to my heart.
Thank you for your consideration in supporting this amazing cause. Any amount helps!
Thank you so much for your kindness,
