I walk to raise money for Keeping the Beat Retreat, a special program for Boston Children's Hospital patients with pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). At our annual weekend event, kids with these types of medical devices can meet each other and do lots of cool activities together while supported and kept safe by the nurses and doctors who know them best.
All the money that our team raises goes directly to funding this incredible experience for our patients. Many of our staff members volunteer at Keeping the Beat and walk to raise money with us. Our patients and their family members walk too.
I love being part of the whole process: raising the money together, using it to provide this wonderful experience, and sharing in that experience as a volunteer for the weekend retreat in September.
Will you help me raise money for Keeping the Beat Retreat? Please donate or consider walking with our team!
