THE STORY:

April 15th 2013.  A day we will never forget.  After running the greatest race of my life, everything changed.  Suddenly race pace and personal records meant nothing.  In a period spanning 12 seconds, we immediately knew something was wrong.  The realization of what the sound was, the mass of humanity running in every direction and the look in Nate's & Ethan’s eyes will forever be with me.  After spending the night quarantined in our hotel separated from Kate and Hailey, I knew that I would be back to run the Boston Marathon in 2014.

As such, I am returning to run the 2014 Boston Marathon for many reasons.  Most importantly, I am returning to continue to support the ongoing efforts to provide the highest level of care for children with airway and voice disorders.  Donations will be used to support cutting edge research to improve the lives of children with breathing and speaking disorders.  Furthermore, we will support Operation Airway.  This unique mission brings together a combined team of pediatric otolaryngologists, pediatric anesthesiologists, pediatric intensivists, and pediatric nurses to perform airway reconstructive surgeries on children to have their tracheotomies safely removed allowing them to breathe without tubes for the very first time. 

On a personal note, as a pediatric otolaryngology fellow, I witnessed firsthand the boundless enthusiasm and expertise of the MEEI family which I have been able to carry to San Diego where I am serving in the US Navy.  I am forever grateful to the institution and the MEEI family.  I ran my first Boston Marathon with the team in 2011 and can’t imagine running Boston without them.

Please consider making a tax deductible donation on this secure website.  Thank you for your support.
