THE STORY:

Last year at the 2013 Boston marathon, my roommate and best friend was hit by the second bomb. She was then brought to Mass General to be treated. I am so grateful that they were able to treat her quickly and help her through the experience as painlessly as possible. 

I feel as if running the marathon this year would be the best way for me to personally thank the hospital for treating her and at the same time support my best friend. I am so lucky to still have her and honestly could not imagine how much my life could have changed had I lost her that day.

Plus, who doesn't want to help find a cure for children's cancer?!

 

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock Financial, the Mass General Marathon Team has raised nearly $9 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital forChildren (MGHfC). Funds raised are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.

MGHfC has put these funds to good use advancing cutting-edge research, increasing the number of clinical studies to improve cure rates and providing the best treatment possible to pediatric cancer patients. But MGHfC is also focused on the quality of life of its young patients and their families. The marathon program also supports child life activities such as art and music therapy and support services for parents and siblings of patients.

We are grateful for the hard work of all of our runners and the dedication of their family and friends as they go through this historic journey. 

 

The 2014 marathon is going to be one of the most historic 26.2 mile runs ever and we are honored to be a part of it. We appreciate your support. MGH Strong!
