This child's-eye view of the Freedom Trail's architecture and history is especially designed for young walkers 6-12 years. Your child will learn about Boston's role in the American Revolution and discover the materials on which a city is built. Walking along Boston's historic Freedom Trail and part of Boston's original coastline, children will be able to see the historical sites that played major roles in American independence such as Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, and the Old South Meeting House. This tour covers ten sites in downtown Boston but is shorter and faster-paced than our Heart of the Freedom Trail tour.
Meet your guide in front of Faneuil Hall at the stature of Samuel Adams on Congress.
General Admission: $10; Free for children under 6
Tickets can be purchased by credit card online at www.bostonbyfoot.org/tours/Boston_By_Little_Feet, or with cash directly from your guide at the time of the tour. It is recommended you arrive at least 10 minutes early.
Thank you for raising awareness about the need for foster parents in Massachusetts. As an organization that also provides Intensive Foster Care, The Home for Little Wanderers has found that many people are unaware of the different types of foster care. We encourage anyone who is interested to learn more. Every child deserves a safe and loving home.
This topic has occupied my mind for years! Thank you for starting a movement that parents so desperately need! It is difficult for young parents to NOT get caught up in the overscheduled lifestyle. No well-meaning parent wants their child to miss any opportunity for healthy enrichment, but too much is counterproductive! Although my children are teenagers now, I would have LOVED to hear your words of wisdom when my family craved downtime!
Dr. Newberger - Thank you for giving the HPV vaccine visibility in your community. We are very passionate about educating people regarding this deadly virus. "This is one of the epidemics of the 21st century," says Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society.
On June 1, 2008 our 23 yr. old daughter Kristen died after a courageous fight against HPV caused cervical cancer. The vaccine would have led to a different outcome for Kristen.
Kristen’s cancer battle led to the book, “Love, Kristen,” which tells about her experience. While doing research for the book, we learned how little women know about HPV and its tie to cervical cancer; the availability and importance of HPV testing and vaccines and Pap screening tests. This fact led to the founding of the Kristen Forbes EVE Foundation and the creation of the Cervical Cancer-Free Indiana Initiative (CCFIN).
The mission of the Kristen Forbes EVE Foundation (www.kristeneve.org) is to eliminate cervical cancer and significantly reduce HPV infection levels. The Foundation is based in Noblesville, IN.
People need to understand that "the HPV vaccination is about cancer....not sex."
Once again, many thanks for writing about HPV.
