Marlborough – Tyler Puchulu, a 10-year-old from Marlborough, decided he wanted to do something to help sick children. Last July, Tyler hosted his first annual Lion Lemonade Stand and raised $2,310 for Boston Children's Hospital. It turned out to be one of the biggest first-time community fundraisers in the history of the hospital.

In 2012, over 320 people throughout New England and around the nation organized community fundraisers for Boston Children's Hospital, raising over $2.2 million for the hospital's life-saving care and world-changing research.

Tyler, who will enter Whitcomb Middle School in the fall, wants to continue his work and do everything he can to help kids who are facing serious and scary health conditions.

This year, on Sunday, July 27, Tyler will host his second annual lemonade stand at Ghiloni Park, 239 Concord Road in Marlborough, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. (with a permit from Mayor Arthur Vigeant). The funds raised will help pay the medical costs of patients whose families cannot afford care, purchase essential medical equipment, support pediatric research, and provide training for the next generation of pediatricians.

To support this fundraiser, visit his stand or make a donation online at https://www.crowdrise.com/tylerslionlemonadestand/fundraiser/heidimessina.
