Boston Children's Hospital | Eversource Walk for Kids

Event details

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 on Sunday, June 9. Here's how it works:


Register for free by 3 pm on Friday, June 7. 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. Note: there is no onsite registration.

Fundraise for kids

Share your personal fundraising page with family, friends and co-workers. Let them know that you are raising funds to help kids and families at Boston Children's, and ask them to support your efforts with a donation. There will be exciting incentives and challenges to boost your fundraising before Walk Day.

Join and celebrate

On Sunday, June 9, join us at the DCR Hatch Shell in Boston and enjoy a two- or six-mile route along the Charles River, family-friendly activities, entertainment, lunch and more. Make sure to bring your reusable water bottle to keep you hydrated along the route. See event FAQs
