THE STORY:

Hello everyone! 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Team BIDMC fundraiser page! This will be my first time running the Boston Marathon and I am over the moon with excitement!

Running the Boston Marathon has always been a dream of mine. Growing up off of Washington Street in Newton just beyond the Wellesley town line at the Mile 16 mark, the Marathon has held a special place in my heart since I was a kid. Every Patriots Day I would watch runners, bikers and athletes of all levels compete in this world-class race. On the surface, the Marathon is day centered on human strength and ability. But those who know it best know that it is a tradition rooted in community and charity. 

I was inspired to apply for the 121st running of the Boston Marathon when I joined the BIDMC community in February 2016. During my first few days as the new kid on campus, I was immediately drawn to the Team BIDMC Tread Strong posters showcasing runners from years past. The posters, though simple, gave me that final push and motivation I needed to decide that this was year I would run.

Although my career at BIDMC is still in its infancy, I quickly learned in my new role that this is a special place. My role within the Department of Communications and Marketing is essentially that of a storyteller. I promote the clinical innovation and groundbreaking research that takes place here on a daily basis, as well as tell the stories of the medical center’s employees and patients. It’s a role that allows me to witness firsthand the impact that BIDMC has on its patients, employees and community. What I’ve gathered in my first year here is that this is an institution that truly gives life to the mission Human First. I am honored and elated to raise funds and awareness for this incredible institution.

The money I will raise will go towards the annual fund at BIDMC. The annual fund helps the BIDMC caregivers continue to provide high quality, compassionate care to every patient that walks through our doors by funding research, programs and medical education. It also supports:

Promising research projects, such as cancer genetics investigations;

Annual operating costs, such as funding for social worker positions;

Career development opportunities for staff, such as continuing education scholarships for nurses;

Expansion of clinical spaces, like minimally invasive surgery suites;

Academic and teaching programs, such as fellowships for the next generation of physicians in growing service lines.

I hope that you will consider donating to my fund. For those unable to provide financial support, I ask that you please help me spread the word! Please SHARE my page with friends and family through email, social media or whatever means you can. The further we can share the cause, the more we can help BIDMC support its employees and care for its patients.

Your support is invaluable. Thank you for joining me in my journey from Hopkinton to Boston in support of BIDMC!

Cheers,

Emily
