EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
Net time 4:26.33 and I finished in one piece. To all those of those supported me, and MGH, THANK YOU! It was an unforgettable lifetime experience. MGH's Emergency Response Fund Team is remarkable, as is the MGH Emergency Department. Beyond saving lives and making a contribution to better our communities, they provide education and guidance to those injured or in need. I'll forever be thankful to MGH for their part helping one of my best friends to work to recapture a lifestyle that has been altered forever as a result of a stroke. MGH provided the kindling to light the fire in him, and all of us, to get back to it. Failure is not an option.
Thanks to your help, the Emergency Response Fund will give to those affected by unexpected tragedy that same opportunity. And provide important funding to train emergency responders to deal effectively by having response protocols in place. With the physical and emotional challenges some people face, running the marathon seems easy and the pain it just temporary.
This MGH Emergency Response Team Fund will serve to strengthen our combined preparedness across the city to provide social services for victims and families of disasters, as well as emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness training. Again, thank you for your generosity. Let's maybe do it again next year?
