BOSTON (CBS) – The second annual New England Walk For Burn Awareness took place Sunday in South Boston.

Dozens of firefighters joined burn survivors and their supporters at Castle Island to raise awareness about burn injuries, and also to raise money about Shriners Hospital.

Michael and Karen Holmstrom took part. Their 22-year-old daughter received burns over 70 percent of her body in a car accident five years ago.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe reports.

They said Shriners Hospital saved their daughter’s life.

“She lost her legs in the car accident, and the burns, but she is just doing so awesome and we continue to support the Shriners and we will for the rest of our lives, because they brought her back,” said Karen Holmstrom.
