THE STORY:

Hi everyone,

I am so excited that I have been chosen to run on the 2017 Boston Marathon for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) team.

Over the years running has become my one true passion. I ran indoor track, outdoor track and cross country for Coventry High School and continued my running career while attending Rhode Island College. I was lucky enough to have such inspirational coaches who encouraged me to continue running post-graduation and build a lifelong love for the tremendous sport. 

In my last semesters at Rhode Island College, I was forced to overcome one of the biggest obstacles that I'd ever faced: tearing my ACL and Meniscus during a skiing accident. Three surgeries and months of rehab later, I was given many disheartening diagnoses. Phrases like "you will need a knee replacement at 21", and " I don't think that your knee will ever move the way it used to" were a regular occurrence. I was told, "I don't think you will be able to ever compete in running again, it's too risky." several times. My love for running helped me persevere throughout my recovery, and from the ashes rose my biggest comeback yet. Since recovering, I have been able to run on a daily basis, and even successfully ran 4 half marathons! I now have the opportunity to go after my heart's biggest goal- running the Boston Marathon, and I hope you will help me make that dream come true.

Team BIDMC is running to support the following programs: Kidney Disease Research, Bowdoin Street Healthy Champions Program, The Klarman Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), The Cancer Center, and the Annual Fund and the Needham, Milton and Plymouth affiliates.

It would be a great honor if you could please help me reach my goal and raise money for a great cause!

Thank you for your support!
