Here are some ways to support Emerson Hospital and the employees right now

Sign up for the Emerson Hospital 5K Virtual Run-Walk for Cancer Cure

Registration is now open for Emerson Hospital’s annual 5k Run~Walk for Cancer Care. Because cancer never stops, even during a pandemic, all proceeds go directly to support patients who receive cancer care at Emerson Hospital. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event is virtual and will take place Monday, May 11, through Monday, May 25, 2020. Visit www.EmersonHospital.org/5k for event details, to register, or make a donation to support cancer care at Emerson Hospital. All participants who complete the 5k and submit their results by May 25 will receive a medal and other prizes.

Consider purchasing (or doing with a few neighbors / friends) a Care Package for Emerson Hospital Staff from Haute Coffee.

Each $50 Haute Care Package includes a box of 10 made-from-scratch Haute Treats and 4 Cold Brews Coffees & 4 Iced Teas!

Haute Coffee will deliver care packages M-F at 2:30 PM and it has become something that the staff at Emerson really look forward to as an afternoon pick me up!

Forest Bathing in Concord

Love to Be outdoors? Boost your wellBeing with a mindful woodland walk in beautiful Concord, MA. BWBH’s Wellness Walks are based on the principles of Forest Bathing, or shinrin yoku, a Japanese practice of intentionally taking in the natural environment with all our senses.

As Japanese doctor and researcher, Qing Li, writes in his book, Forest Bathing: How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness, “spending time in a forest can reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and anger; strengthen the immune system; improve cardiovascular and metabolic health; and boost overall well-being” (Mind & Body, Aug 20, 2018). Mindful Wellness Walks also benefit the trees and our earth!

Forest Bathing Wellness Walk led by BWBH founder and lifelong friend of trees, Lara Wilson

MEET AT the Hapgood Wright Town Forest trailhead across from CCHS entrance, 500 Walden Street
