Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I feel incredibly fortunate to be joining Team BMC for the 2015 Boston Marathon. The Boston Medical Center is a truly amazing place. 70% of BMC's patients come from under-served populations and more than half have an annual income at or below $21k. Despite this, BMC provides exceptional care without exception to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
This year, philanthropic efforts from Team BMC will be dedicated to the Building the New BMC campaign which will include construction of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department. Boston Medical Center has the busiest Emergency and Trauma Center in New England with 130,000 patients per year—more than two-thirds of Boston’s major trauma cases annually. 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 support for the entire city of Boston.
I only recently got off of the waitlist and was accepted for a place on the team, but it is my goal to raise at least $5,000 for this amazing cause. Please help me make this possible and join me in supporting BMC!
