26.2 MILES TO A NEW BMC!
Last spring I swore I would never run another marathon. If it weren’t for the amazing work that Boston Medical Center does for the city of Boston and the amazing work they have done for my family, I would be true to my word. As many of you know, my brother, JP, was injured at the marathon bombings and was fortunate enough to be rushed to Boston Medical Center. For that my family is eternally grateful. BMC provides exceptional care without exception to anyone who comes in their doors and helps to hold Boston together.
This year I am running the marathon with an amazing team that is dedicated to the cause and have personally committed to raise $10,000 so that BMC can continue to serve the people of Boston.
Any help you can give would be so greatly appreciated, whether it be a donation or simply sharing my link to help spread the word. Thank you for your continuing support!
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!
