Boston Bruins Step up their Game for FRAXA The Boston Bruins Foundation has supported FRAXA many times, notably through 50-50 raffles at Bruins home games at Boston's TD Garden. Thank you to Bob Sweeney and everyone at the Boston Bruins Foundation for your ongoing support. March 30, 2017 was an amazing night at the TD Garden in Boston. Fifty friends of FRAXA gathered to watch the Boston Bruins take on the Dallas Stars. It was a great opportunity for us to unite the local Fragile X community in greater Boston. We were able to convene and thank some of our local families and introduce them to some scientists and biotech companies who are working to find a cure for Fragile X. The night was made available by a generous donation of the Garden View Room by TD Bank.
