In 2007, Billy & Alexis Reilly started a charity bike ride called Pedaling for Preemies in honor of their son, Will. All funds raised benefit the Brigham Womens & Childrens Hospitals’ NICU’s. To date, they have raised more than $225,000. This year, the ride throughout southeastern Massachusetts (50 or 100 mile) will take place Sunday, Sept 26.

Birthday Wishes is a charity dedicated to recognizing the importance of a child’s birthday and bringing happiness and hope to homeless children through hosting birthday parties.
Birthday Wishes was founded in November 2002 with a mission to help underprivileged children build self-esteem and normalcy in their lives. They believe that every child, despite their living situation, deserves a celebration for their birthday. Everyone can relate to this cause which has attributed to the rapid growth of Birthday Wishes thanks to the community involvement and volunteers of all ages. From toddlers to senior citizens, these people support the parties by providing party supplies, and most importantly, their time and effort to run the parties.
