BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! This will be my 8th year fundraising for and running with TEAM BMC, and I am so excited!
As with all the years in the past, I am running for the Cancer Patient Support Services Fund at Boston Medical Center, a fund that supports the hospital's cancer patients and their families.
I hope you will join me in making a gift toward this very important and crucial fund that helps cancer patients with anything from support groups to covering the cost of transportation to get them to their appointments (most of the patients who come to Boston Medical Center come from some of the poorest neighborhoods in and around Boston).
Any amount you give will make a difference here.
Thank you for your support and if I win the marathon this year, I'll be sure to include your name in my victory speech!

26.2 MILES TO A NEW BMC!
For the past 12 years, Boston Medical Center has proudly participated in Boston’s historic Marathon, raising more than $2.16 million for the hospital. In 2014, BMC was fortunate to have our biggest team in history, comprised of 107 runners and led by honorary team captain, actor Kevin Spacey. But the true stars last year were our runners who pounded the pavement, crossed the finish line and helped raise more than $1.1 million, in honor of the victims and marathon survivors of 2013. We are 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 our city strong.
This year, philanthropic efforts from Team BMC will be dedicated to our Building the New BMC campaign which will include construction of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department for our region. 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.
Thank you for supporting Boston Medical Center in our mission to provide exceptional care, without exception every day!
