Boston Stronger

Boston Stronger

95.9 WATD-FMComing up on MommaJam, Thursday, April 17, 2014.

Tune in at 7:10 a.m. on 95.9 WATD-FM on the radio dial or online.
In the one year since the Boston Marathon bombings, the people affected by the tragedy have become stronger – through the support of family, friends, complete strangers and sheer will power.
This year, the Boston Marathon continues with pride, energy and determination.  Many stories focus on the athletes, but there’s a whole group of people running this grueling race to raise money for charities that benefit children.
Here’s a list of teams you can donate to this year – because we are Boston Stronger!
1.  House of Hope in Easton – this non-profit provides all sorts of incredible learning and adventure programs for kids with developmental disabilities.  The House of Hope also gives parents much needed “time off” to feel refreshed, renewed and ever vigilant when caring for someone who needs constant nurturing.
House of Hope is looking for runners!  If you’ve always wanted to run the marathon or want to run for a charity, but can’t get a bib, now is your chance.  http://www.houseofpossibilities.org/boston-marathon/
2.  The Children’s Room in Arlington, which helps grieving teens and children cope with the death of family members.   Donate to this much needed non-profit that helps kids deal with difficult, life changing situations, such as a parent passing away.  http://childrensroom.org
3.  Children’s Hospital Boston – Miles for Miracles.  This team has already raised $2 million dollars!   Who hasn’t been to Children’s Hospital Boston – the best doctors are there!  The staff at every level from the valet attendants to world-famous surgeons are courteous and respectful and best in class.  The funds support much needed scientific research that keeps our children healthy and strong.  http://fundraise.childrenshospital.org
4.  Cops for Cancer – from Braintree on the South Shore
Provides funding for families with children who have cancer.

There’s been an overwhelming amount of people – thousands, in fact – who want to run for charities this year’s Boston marathon.  Instead donate to the teams who are running to help children in need.
