Boston Children's Hospital | Eversource walk for kids

Your impact

Your fundraising provides lifesaving answers to the sickest kids and their families, many of whom travel from far away for help they can't find anywhere else. The money raised by individual Walk participants (those not on a team) goes to the Every Child Fund—directly helping patients and families by supporting care and services that are not covered by insurance and advancing promising research.
