Celebrating the Fundraising Efforts of Tufts University Medical School Students!

Four story brick building with adjacent courtyard

With the enduring financial strain of COVID-19 on USES and our families, we are especially grateful for the growing community of supporters who meet our needs while we meet those of our families. Contributing to this vital community is a pair of Tufts University School of Medicine students, Kirsten Wesolek and Sharon Kelmar, who launched the 1st annual Jumbos Jog for Justice fundraiser this fall. As leaders within Tufts’ 50-person Learning Communities, which provide students with a space to meaningfully contribute to social justice efforts in the community, Kirsten and Sharon were inspired to plan a virtual 5k race to benefit USES. The creative initiative is backed by an administration that has taken important steps to become a more actively anti-racist campus. More than 195 students participated in the virtual 5k race last Saturday, which raised $2,050. Like USES, these future health care providers understand the importance of high-quality education and wrap-around care, and we are thrilled to have them on our side. While Kirsten and Sharon met their $2,000 goal, they continue to encourage and accept donations through their fundraising page here.
