Welcome to the Minutes for Memories Boston College Chapter page! Thanks for coming to our site, check back for updates throughout the year!
A little background...
After interning with the Minutes for Memories Foundation in the spring of 2012, Caroline Karalias, Kate Xu, and Francesca Malvarosa had the idea to form a group at BC. While traumatic injury statistics show just how many people they actually affect in our community, there didn't seem to be any group on campus that sought to help those in recovery. To meet this need and spread awareness about traumatic injuries, MFMBC becaome officially established in the fall of 2013.
What we hope to accomplish...
Amoung our ambitious initiatives for year one, we aim to:
- Host campaigns on campus to spread awareness about traumatic injuries
- Bring speakers to campus to share their inspirational stories of recovering from traumatic injuries
- Begin a Pen Pal program to develop friendships between students and children in the community living with traumatic injuries
