In this episode, Executive Director of Lingzi Foundation Helen Zhao and board member Ryan Winters talk about the organization that was formed with a mission to give back to the community that lent support in a time of tragedy, so they can help others pursue their own dreams through Lu Lingzi’s spirit.
An inspiration sprouted in the aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing attack, the Lingzi Foundation is a 501 (c) (3), not-for-profit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts. It was formed by the family of Lu Lingzi, who perished during the Boston Marathon bombing attack, to preserve and perpetuate Lingzi’s life example. Through their programs, youth are able to cultivate connections and support one another––which they have adapted to and maintained across this pandemic.
