Milagros fundraising initiative
Boston Children's Hospital has long been a beacon for Latino families. In 2009, a group of Latino professionals founded Milagros para Niños to raise money for families in need.
Milagros para Niños improves the lives of all kids with a focus on Latino kids by raising funds for Boston Children's programs that impact underserved children with a focus on the Latino community. Programs in community health offer wraparound care to local families struggling to get by while addressing the biggest threats facing these families, such as asthma, obesity and mental health.
Meanwhile, our international programs ensure families who've run out of options in their corner of the world can find hope here at Boston Children's. Funds raised through Milagros para Niños—our gala, Mega Boston Radiothon, the Milagros team at NSTAR’s Walk for Boston Children’s—is a lifeline to these families.
Attend our gala
For this year’s Carnaval-themed gala on September 12, we honored two of Boston Children’s most compassionate caregivers, Elliot Meléndez, MD, and Luz Maria Davila, RN, BSN, CCRN. We were also joined once again by John Quiñones, Emmy-winning journalist and anchor of ABC’s “What Would You Do?” Quiñones served as master of ceremonies. Thank you to all who joined us to support Latino families who rely on our care.
