BENEFITING: THE SHRINERS HOSPITALS FOR CHILDREN - BOSTON
ORGANIZER: THE SHRINERS HOSPITALS FOR CHILDREN - BOSTON
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
Please help me and the MIT Space Balloon Team make a difference in the lives of the patients of Shriners Hospitals for Children by donating to this fundraiser. Shriners Hospitals for Children provides highly specialized pediatric surgical care for children with severe burn injuries, complex skin conditions, and cleft lip/palate. Even more incredibly, all care and services are provided *regardless* of the patients' ability to pay.
Personally, we have met members of the staff and have been able to witness firsthand incredible bravery, strength, resilience, and love throughout this organization. Shriners Hospital provides an environment which gives hope for the children to conquer their injuries and regain strength and function for life. I hope that by running the 119th Boston Marathon I can rally support and help advocate for 'Team Love to the Rescue'.
Just like our charitable efforts last year, the MIT Space Balloon Team is planning to do something special for the child patients of Shriners-Boston. We plan to dedicate our next high altitude balloon launch to the brave children and their caretakers. On April 11, we intend to send a piece of Shriners and our love to the edge of space and back.
Fundraising for Shriners Hospitals for Children is one of the most charitable programs we can think of. Please help us support this life-saving cause.
