26.2 MILES TO A NEW BMC!
For 12 years, Boston Medical Center has proudly participated in Boston’s historic Marathon, raising more than $2.1 million for the hospital. Last year alone, BMC raised more than half of that amount: we were fortunate to have our biggest team in history, 107 runners led by actor and honorary team captain, Kevin Spacey. Our runners pounded the pavement, crossed the finish line and helped raise more than $1.1 million in honor of the victims and bombing survivors of 2013.
This year, Team BMC has again set an ambitious target of $700,000, dedicated to our "Building the New BMC" campaign, which includes construction of a state-of-the-art Emergency Department for our region. BMC has the busiest Emergency and Trauma Center in New England with 130,000 patients per year—twice the number of major trauma cases as all the other Boston hospitals combined. Understanding that trauma does not discriminate and anyone may need our services in a moment’s time, Team BMC is committed to ensuring Boston Medical Center remains one of the finest 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!
