As a tribute to Meghan's courageous legacy, the funds raised from this event will benefit:
Baystate Health & Boston Children's Hospital:
- 65 Wellness Wishes: Meghan's Light 65 Wellness Wishes grants 65 health-focused awards for wellness memberships and activities for cystic fibrosis patients at Boston Children's Hospital and will expand this fall to patients at the Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine Cystic Fibrosis Program at Baystate Health in Springfield, MA. The target number 65 references sixty-five roses, a term used since 1965 by young children with cystic fibrosis trying to pronounce the name of their disease.
