26.2 MILES TO A NEW BMC!
Watching the Boston Marathon was always a fun and inspiring part of the "Boston Experience." Last year, while watching a few friends run by I decided I wanted to be part of it. Having lived and breathed BMC for the last 5+ years as a urology resident, I figured there was no better way to punctuate my time in this city and at this hospital than to run on behalf of Boston Medical Center.
I'm very proud of the work we do at BMC everyday and the difference we make in Boston and in New England and I can't think of a more deserving charity, so for the first time in my life, I'll run 26.2 miles to support BMC's mission.
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!
