Mission Statement

Live4Evan supports patients and families affected by cardiac disease.

Description

Evan Nicholas Girardi, was born with a congenital heart defect called Correct L-Transposition of the Great Arteries. In 2010, he passed away unexpectedly from a heart arrythmia at the age of 20. Live4Evan (L4E) was formed by a close-knit group of Evan’s friends determined to honor his life by giving back to others and spreading heart happiness "Evan’s Way". We began participating in active events, such as the Tough Mudder, the Boston Marathon, and local 5k’s as a way to come together as a team and "Live 4 Evan". The feeling of community that these events provided, led us to form Live4Evan and host active lifestyle events that fundraise for our own patient family housing project in Boston and spread those feelings to a larger audience. In addition to our apartment housing initiative, L4E operates a volunteer meal program at the Yawkey Family Inn, delivers care packs to Boston Children’s Heart Center patients, and maintains a scholarship for graduates of Hopkinton High School. L4E also provides support for the team of doctors and nurses at Boston Cardiac Foundation, who deliver free cardiac care to patients in developing countries. Join us in promoting healthy and happy hearts!
