The Relentless School Nurse: Support the 27th Annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace Supporting the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s Mission!


Dr. Peter Masiakos is raising funds for the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute through their annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace on May, 14, 2023. He is also the Co-Director of Mass General Hospital’s Gun Violence Prevention Center. Here is a link to Dr. Masiakos’s fundraising page:

I have cared for many victims of gun violence and have had to tell mothers about the death of their child—the worst part of my job. Doctors, among others, can no longer stand on the sidelines as so many Americans are killed each year.

Every year, the Louis D. Brown Institute hosts a Mother’s Day Walk for Peace (MDW4P) to support the work of their organization. I had the honor of meeting Chaplain Clementina Chéry, the mother of Louis D. Brown, and the founder of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute through my work with Dr. Masiakos. We presented together at the Lake Nona Impact Forum, just a few weeks ago. 

Here is an explanation of the walk retrieved from their website:

Cultivating Cycles of Peace

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace (MDW4P) is a beloved 27-year-long Boston tradition and celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities. It is the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s (LDBPI) largest fundraising event to grow and sustain our services, advocacy and training. Our goal is to empower survivors, Generation Peace and communities impacted by murder, trauma, grief and loss to cultivate cycles of peace and healing.

Our 2023 theme is “Cultivating Cycles of Peace.” In our society, we are constantly looped into cycles of violence that overshadow the transformative power of peace. Like a blooming flower, cycles of peace flourish when carefully cultivated. We have the agency to cultivate these cycles by empowering survivors, supporting returning citizens and their families and investing in Generation Peace.

We invite you to walk with us as we cultivate cycles of peace in our communities. Our goal is $600,000. With your help, we can reach it, together! Join us on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14, 2023, at 8:00 AM for more details click here.
