Life Science Cares

Team Ironwood is driven-- when they set their minds to giving back, they're going to make sure they do it all the way! Your financial support will help them win the fundraising prize (just in case they don't win the physical challenge!)


If there's one thing that motivates life science professionals beyond their desire to serve patients, it's competition. In order to exploit that competitive spirit in the name of charity, we created Life Science Cares Battles-- special events that pit company teams against one another for bragging rights. The first event-- Battle of the Bikes-- was an indoor cycling competition at which Arsanis (physical challenge) and Genocea (fundraising challenge) came out on top. 

This second event in the series-- Battle of the Boats-- will really test teamwork, as company teams will row Dragon Boats on the Charles River!

August 9th —4 pm to 6 pm
Hatch Shell, Boston
The event, run by the Dragon Boat Club of Boston, includes a safety/training lesson and several short(ish) races to determine our champions.



Life Science Cares is a collective effort of life science companies and their employees to end poverty in Greater Boston. The organization harnesses the industry's financial and human resources in support of nonprofit partner organizations providing basic human services, education or economic sustainability.
