EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

Mileage Tracker: 150

THE STORY:

I'm going to run the marathon in honor of a childhood friend who survived cancer 20 years ago, many friends and family who survived cancer as adults, and a young preschool friend of my sons' who passed away last June.

About the Marathon Team

The MGH team has 109 runners this year.  Its a wonderful group of people!

Since 1998, the Mass General Marathon Team has raised over $6.7 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). Funds raised are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients. Apply to run on the 2012 Mass General Marathon Team today!

The Child-Life Program

I used to be a childlife volunteer, its a very important program.

The Child-Life Program within the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at MGHfC benefits every year from the funds raised by the Marathon Team. The program utilizes therapeutic play — including music and art therapy, massage and acupuncture — to help pediatric cancer patients and their families cope emotionally and developmentally with their illnesses. This year, more patients than ever before utilized Child-Life services, an indication of the growing popularity of the programming, the recognition of its importance and the program’s ability to continue to expand its offerings — thanks in large part to philanthropic dollars.
