Harbor walk to raise funds for Floating Hospital

Feel like taking a walk for a good cause?

The School of Medicine is looking to put together a 50-member team to take part in the Floating Hospital Boston Harbor Walk on Sunday, June 1. All proceeds will benefit the hospital, which is part of Tufts-New England Medical Center.

The walk starts at 9 a.m. at the Bayside Expo Center and will travel six to eight miles to Castle Island in South Boston.

The cost to register for the walk is $25 and includes a T-shirt and refreshments. Each walker is being asked to obtain pledges of at least $100, including the $25 registration fee. The fund-raising goal for Team TUSM is $5,000, and all members of the Tufts University community, along with family and friends, are encouraged to join the team.

To sign up, visit the web site www.bostonharborwalk.kintera.org and follow the directions to “Join a Team.” The team you want to join is TEAM TUSM, with Captain Carrie Thomas. You will have to use a credit card to register. Questions? Please contact Carrie Thomas at (617) 636-6508 or e-mail carrie.thomas@tufts.edu
