On Thursday, June 13, Daniel Straus, CEO of HealthBridge Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers, hosted a special fundraiser at Boston’s Museum of Science to honor those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. Over $200,000 in donations was raised, with the hope of reaching a goal of $250,000 as additional donations are tallied.

Boston Marathon Director Dave McGillivray, Boston Medical Director Dr. Aaron Baggish, and Dr. David King, a trauma and acute care surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, were among the special guests who spoke at the fundraiser. Dr. King received commendation for having finished the marathon and going straight to Massachusetts General Hospital to assist in treating victims of the attacks.
