I'm running the 115th Boston Marathon as a part of the Children's Hospital Boston "Miles for Miracles" Team. I'm running to honor the memory of my dear friend's daughter Brenya Elizabeth Sullivan (3/2/09-10/18/09) who was born with a genetic brain malformation called polymicrogyria and spent most of her short life in and out of Children's Hospital for tests, treatments and other procedures. The team at Children's provided Brenya's family with access to specialists, teams of doctors to managage many of the different aspects of Brenya's condition, and even people to check in on her parents to make sure they were taken care of emotionally and otherwise. Without private donations and and the efforts of teams like "Miles for Miracles" raising awareness and funding, many of the programs that helped make Brenya's family's time together all it could be, would not exist. Please help me help Children's Hospital Boston and all of the families who rely on them to keep hope alive!
