I am thrilled to be running the 2018 NYC Half Marathon to support RxArt. The mission of RxArt is to bring the power of visual art to hospitalized children. We commission extraordinary artists to transform hospital spaces that are often frightening and stressful into healing environments full of inspiration, humor, and comfort. Every project is produced at no cost to the hospitals.
The goal of $2,500 will directly support our newest project: Privacy Curtains created by Jonas Wood (pictured) for Children's National Health System in Washington, D.C. This amount will allow us to produce these extra happy curtains for 10 beds in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. That's only about 10% of the total number we'll produce for Children's National and ideally more hospitals beyond.
With 5 major projects underway in the U.S. and the launch of RxArt Canada, our projects will soon reach over 1 million hospitalized children and their families! Your support helps bring a positive and creative distraction to hundreds of thousands of kids as they take on their own medical marathons.
Much love and thanks for supporting at any amount!
