THE STORY:

For those of you who know me well, it may come as a complete surprise that I have decided to run the 2015 Boston Marathon.  However, this spring I am proud to say that I will be running 26.2 miles on behalf of Boston Medical Center (BMC). Many other medical institutions in Boston enjoy headliner status and great support. However, BMC has captivated our team as they provide accessible health services to all in need of care regardless of status or ability to pay - 365 days a year. BMC is truly, the glue that holds this remarkable city together, I am honored to be running on behalf of this institution.   

I am also running for another reason.  His name is Forrest Stone Allen.  My childhood friend, Forrest, suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2011.  For the past four years, Forrest has inspired me with his unwavering positive spirit, his humor, and his tireless persistence to reclaim his health and his life.  He is my inspiration. He is my hero.  If you want to know more, here is a film clip about Forrest and a local organization, A Place to Be, which has helped him to find his voice.  It's a feel good 5 minutes: http://vimeo.com/99751892


My family and I will match whatever I raise in honor of Forrest and in support of A Place to Be located in Middleburg, Virginia.  A Place to Be is helping Forrest, and many others find their place in the world through the power of music therapy. 

Thank you, in advance, for supporting these two organizations.

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!
