MEGHAN’S LIGHT AWARDED ONE OF FOUR NATIONAL IMPACT GRANTS FROM THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION
It is an honor to announce that Meghan’s Light was one of four recipients in the country and the only organization in Massachusetts to receive the 2017 Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Impact Grant for its newest initiative 65 Wellness Wishes. Meghan’s Light 65 Wellness Wishes grants 65 health-focused awards for wellness memberships and activities in and outside the hospital. Recipients are children and adults with CF treated at Boston Children’s Hospital with a percentage reserved for Boston Children’s patients living in Western 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. The project honors Meghan Hukowicz Zoll’s lifelong passion for fitness and supports recipients with cystic fibrosis in incorporating wellness and fitness into their lives.
