This is my fourth year participating in ECDM, and I could not be more excited for the big day! This year, I am on the Dancer Relations Committee! I am trying to raise $1,800 this year bringing my total ECDM fundraising to $5,000. Every year, I do this in honor of Payton Watson who was a close friend, who passed away from AML at a young age of 11. Payton received a bone marrow transplant at Boston Children's, which was her only chance of survival. Unfortunately Payton relapsed, but the bone marrow transplant allowed her to spend 18 more months on earth with us. Because of this, Boston Children's Hospital holds a very special place in my heart.
I hope you will consider supporting my participation in Emmanuel College Dance Marathon. All contributions will benefit my local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital. Any contribution will help, and all donations are tax deductible.
Boston Children’s Hospital treats approximately 1,900 patients every single day. These programs make each patient’s stay a little brighter. $30 – Can provide the balloons for one day in the emergency department. $50 – Can provide 10 meal vouchers for families. $75 – Can provide Parent Coffee Hour for an inpatient floor. $100 - Can provide a helium tank for Child Life. The hospital goes through one helium tank per week decorating for holidays and patient birthdays.
