Regina was born in Mexico with a deadly heart defect. The surgery needed to save her life was not available there, so her parents, Elizabeth and Eduardo, brought their newborn to Children’s Hospital Boston. The Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation partnered with CHB to pay for the surgeries that would save her life.
Update on Team Tye and THE 2016 TOUR DE SOUTH SHORE that was held on October 1, 2016 at Wampatuck State Park. We were chosen as a partner with the prestigious McCourt Foundation in this fundraising endeavor. We want to THANK ALL WHO PARTICIPATED AND DONATED to our first fundraiser in partnership with the McCourt Foundation.
We raised $17,181 of which 90% will go directly to the Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation. WAY TO GO TEAM TYE!
Let’s all keep Ray Tye’s Legacy moving forward into the future.
