The Eversource Walk for Boston Children’s Hospital is the one day each year when our entire community—friends, families, sponsors, patients, Boston Children’s employees—comes together for kids. That’s pretty special. Join us at the DCR Hatch Shell in Boston or create your own route on Sunday, June 11. Here’s how it works:
Register for free. Create a team, join a team, join on your own or volunteer. You’ll receive a Fundraising Center with tips, tools, and a personal fundraising page to help you reach your goal. You can join us in person at the DCR Hatch Shell in Boston, or at any location you choose!
Fundraise for kids
Share your personal fundraising page with family, friends and coworkers. Let them know that you are participating and raising funds to help kids and families at Boston Children’s, and ask them to support your efforts with a donation. We’ve also planned exciting incentives and challenges to boost your fundraising before Walk Day. All participants who raise $150 by July 1 will receive a Walk T-shirt. Participants who raise $150 or more will receive a T-shirt on Walk Day. Virtual participants, those creating their own course, who raise $150 or more by May 31 will receive their T-shirt in the mail.
Join and celebrate
On Sunday, June 11, join us at the DCR Hatch Shell in Boston or create your own course anywhere you’d like.
