LYNNFIELD — The Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation has received two invitational entry bids for the 2015 Boston Marathon from the John Hancock Nonprofit Program.
The foundation is looking for two outstanding individuals to join their team and raise money to support its projects at Tufts Medical Center’s Floating Hospital for Children in memory of former Lynnfield resident and Boston Bruin Garnet “Ace” Bailey.
Each runner for Ace is required by John Hancock to raise a minimum of $5,000. Ace team members will have access to the foundation’s team trainer.
Team members will also create their own fundraising page on Crowdrise, which is linked to the Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation website.
The work of the Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation focuses on the well-being of hospitalized children through the building and renovation of hospital environments that improve the family-centered and softer side of hospital care.
The Foundation strives to reduce the stress of pediatric hospitalization by creating environments that are less clinical in appearance and more comforting and soothing for children and their families. The Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston is the recipient of their funding.
Those interested in the foundation’s work who would like to join their team or those who know runners who might be interested may contact [email protected] for questions or an application.
