On September 30th, I will be participating in the Meghan's Light 5k Road Race & Family Fun Walk. This is my first ever 5K. I am running with my friends, many of whom are also girl scouts in my troop. I would like to ask you to please consider making a donation to Meghan's Light. It is a really good cause! Thank you!!!!
The mission of this organization is to support finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and to inspire hope and courage in patients, families and communities impacted by the disease.
Meghan's Light was established to commemorate the life and legacy of Meghan Hukowicz Zoll.
As a tribute to Meghan's courageous legacy, the funds raised from this event will benefit:
Boston Children's Hospital
Cystic Fibrosis Discovery Fund: Supports Dr. Craig Gerard's Pulmonary and Respiratory Disease research
Extraordinary Needs Fund: Supports patient care, staff education, new technologies and treatments, and other initiatives as needed in the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic.
Meghan's Light 65 Wellness Wishes: Grants 65 health-focused awards for wellness membership and activities in and outside the hospital. Recipients are children and adults with cystic fibrosis treated at Boston Children's Hospital with a percentage reserved for patients living in Western MA.
The project's target number of 65 references sixty-five roses, a term used since 1965 by young children with cystic fibrosis trying to pronounce the name of their disease.
The project honors Meghan's lifelong passion for fitness.
Meghan's light will continue to radiate in beautiful ways!

#GivingTuesday to Support Meghan's Light
Dear Meghan's Light Friends,
Meghan's Light will be participating in #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. During this beautiful season of giving, we ask that you please consider making a donation to Meghan's Light to help those impacted by CF. We have worked closely with the Boston Children's Hospital CF Social Work team and they have shared with us some of the unforeseen expenses a typical CF family incurs. For example, a typical 10 day hospital stay may include the following expenses: food, gas, tolls, parking expenses, copay and/or uncovered medical device costs. These expenses can become costly. We created a sample list below to show how your donation can help alleviate some of the financial burdens CF families incur at Boston Children's Hospital and included some other items that can help them to live longer, fuller lives.
$10 - copays, meal gift cards (Au Bon Pain in Boston Children's hospital), parking garage fees, tolls
$25 - copay, gas gift card
$50 - gas gift card, groceries
$100 - groceries
$225 - hotel stay nearby hospital
$250 - Meghan's Light Wellness Wish (Please visit www.meghanslight.com to learn about our newest initiative.)
$330- 36GB iPad (to help CF patients maintain a relationship with other CF patients since they are advised not to share space with other patients due to the transfer of infection)
$1000-$1500 - Holiday gifts for a CF family
**If you choose to make a donation in honor or memory of someone and would like us to send someone a note, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a name and address. Also, if you choose to support something specific, please send an email indicating the specific area and we will direct the gift directly toward it.
Meghan's Light continues to shine radiantly and inspire others due to your kind hearts and generosity. We wish you a season filled with abundant blessings.
