Boston Marathon Benefit Day

Lisa, John, Chris, Meghan, and Tim Horan

Lisa, John, Chris, Meghan, and Tim Horan

Today's yoga and meditation classes are all donation-based to raise funds for our friends Lisa Horan and Jamie Van Ness and their running team for the Boston Marathon. Lisa and Jamie's team is hitting the pavement hard to raise money specifically for the Emergency Department upgrades to the Boston Medical Center.

The BMC's emergency room is sorely lacking the space it needs to meet the demands of the care it provides on a daily basis. They see twice as many patients as the facility was designed for, including the first wave of victims from the 2013 marathon bombing.

As the largest and busiest provider of trauma and emergency services in New England, the BMC never turns anyone away and serves more than 130,000 patients each year!

Bring your friends and join us in supporting this worthwhile effort. All monies collected today will go directly to Lisa and Jamie's team!
