Welcome to the BILH Mother's Day Walk for Peace Fundraising Page!
Beth Israel Lahey Health (BILH) is proud to be a sponsor of the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace! Please join Dr. Kevin Tabb, BILH’s President and CEO, your colleagues and their families as we walk in support of peace. This will be Dr. Tabb’s 8th year serving as Co-Chair and supporting this event and the important work of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute.
Working across the Commonwealth, the Peace Institute provides support, tools, education and assistance for families and communities impacted by violence, murder, trauma, grief and loss. In its 26th year, the Mother's Day Walk for Peace (MDW4P), is a celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities. This year’s theme is Building Together for Generation Peace, with the aim of modeling peace and building a better, non-violent community and world for our children, youth, families and neighbors.
BILH understands that in addition to medical and mental health care, families of homicide victims often require emotional and practical support to deal with the physical, emotional, and financial stress they face as a result of their loss. That kind of compassionate and coordinated response not only helps to interrupt cycles of violence but also helps families heal from intergenerational trauma.
Because BILH is a sponsor of the Mother's Day Walk for Peace, BILH employees can register for this event at no charge (please see directions below). Employees will also have the option to make a donation, if they choose.
