On Sunday, June 11, nearly 5,400 walkers gathered at the DCR Hatch Shell in Boston, MA to take part in the 13th annual Eversource Walk for Boston Children's Hospital (BCH). As in years past, Bain Capital Community Partnership (BCCP) served as a sponsor of the 2017 Walk. Team Bain Capital included 13 participants, comprised of employees, family, and friends. To date, the team has raised a total of $23,695 to support critical research, patient care and community health programs at BCH.
"This event provides a unique opportunity to be able to support our local Boston community and hospital, all while spending the day with family and friends," said Bain Capital Vice President and team captain Greg Hegerich. "The support across the entire firm was greatly appreciated, and we would like to extend a big thank you to all!"
Thousands of patient families, doctors, nurses, corporate sponsors, hospital leaders and other supporters participated in a 2- or 4-mile course. The participants raised more than $1.4 million – and counting – to support the BCH, while enjoying beautiful weather, music, food and family fun.
Funds raised from the Eversource Walk support BCH's Children's Fund and benefit areas of greatest need – from funding the groundbreaking work taking place in BCH's world-renowned research programs to covering housing for families.
