BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
To begin, I just want to say that I am so incredibly excited and honored to be running the 2015 Boston Marathon with Team BMC!
Boston Medical Center is much more than an average hospital, its Boston’s largest provider of world-class health care regardless of status or ability to pay. The mission is simple and clear: provide exceptional care, without exception every day! About 70% of BMC patients come from under-served populations (including low-income families, elders, people with disabilities, minorities and immigrants). Also, more than half of BMC’s patients have an annual income of $20,420 or below! BMC’s Emergency department serves nearly 130,000 patients each year making it a national model of emergency medicine. These numbers make it the busiest 24-hour level 1 trauma center in New England!
This year, funds raised by Team BMC, will support the construction and much needed expansion of a new state-of-the-art emergency department. My goal is to raise $10,000 to aid in the much-needed improvements! Please help me in my efforts by making a donation of any amount to Team BMC and show your support to the entire city of Boston!
To make a donation click on the orange “Donate to this Fundraiser” box in the upper right and just fill out the form. If you would like to write a check, that’s cool too! Please make checks out to “Boston Medical Center” and write my name (Alyssa Smart) in the memo section and then mail it in to:
