December Fundraiser a Blast!

The band Rod-the-Longbone played at Vinalia, a hip downtown Boston bar, to benefit Operation Walk. More than 200 people came to see the band and donate to our cause. We are very grateful to the band members - consisting of orthopaedists, plastic surgeons, and general surgeons - as well as all those who generously donated to Op Walk. We will use every cent (nearly $2500) raised during the event to fund our upcoming trip to the Dominican Republic.

In other Op-Walk news, the count down to March 25th has begun. We have been studying patient charts and xrays to select the most appropriate candidates for joint replacement. The cargo lists are nearly finalized and travel arrangements are being made. Things are coming together for another great trip!
