EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016

THE STORY:

Team BMC is excited to announce its 2016 Honorary Co-captains—former BMC patient Jeff Bauman and actor Jake Gyllenhaal. Bauman, who was severely injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, was rushed to Boston Medical Center where he received world-class care to treat his injuries. He became a symbol of the city’s strength and pride and his account of that day and his recovery, outlined in his inspiring memoir titled “Stronger,” will be adapted into a film where Gyllenhaal will portray Bauman.  The film, directed by David Gordon Green, will begin shooting in Boston this spring. The pair are excited to provide support and serve as honorary co-captains for all 87 runners of BMC’s official Boston Marathon team, Team BMC.

For the past 13 years, Boston Medical Center has proudly participated in Boston’s historic marathon, raising more than $2.91 million for the hospital. In 2015, BMC was fortunate to have 86 runners—a group of dedicated teammates, from New York to California, who pounded the pavement, crossed the finish line and helped raise more than $751,000. BMC is grateful to John Hancock Financial and the Boston Athletic Association for making Team BMC possible and for recognizing the unique role BMC plays in keeping Boston strong.

This year, philanthropic efforts from Team BMC will be dedicated to the hospital’s Building the New BMC campaign which will include the construction of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department for the region. Boston Medical is the busiest provider of trauma and emergency services in the region, with more than 130,000 emergency visits and more than 2,000 trauma admissions per year.

From the privately insured to the homeless, our Emergency Department and Level I Trauma Center offer outstanding care to patients from all walks of life. For many of our patients, our ER not only addresses acute medical issues, it serves as their primary care clinic where they seek treatment for everything from sore throats to sickle-cell disease. But when more severe problems arise, our Trauma Center is always prepared. In the wake of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, BMC Trauma responded immediately to eight patients’ life-threatening injuries and cared for 28 victims in total—all of whom survived. We were ready, because as Boston’s hospital for so many of the region’s most serious trauma cases, it’s the kind of work we do every day.

Understanding that trauma does not discriminate and anyone may need our services in a moment’s time, Team BMC stands committed to ensuring Boston Medical Center remains one of the very best trauma centers in the country. By donating to Team BMC you are showing your commitment to the entire city of Boston.

Thank you for supporting Boston Medical Center in our mission to provide exceptional care, without exception!
