BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am so excited and honored to have the opportunity to run the 119th Boston Marathon on behalf of Boston Medical Center. As many of you know there are several things I'm pretty passionate about-- social work, running, and my home city of Boston top that list. This opportunity is a perfect trifecta of these things--providing me the chance to run 26.2 miles through a city I love for a hospital that provides "exceptional care without exception."
Last year as a team, BMC raised more than $1.1 million in honor of the victims and Marathon survivors of 2013. This year, our fundraising efforts will be dedicated to BMCs “Building the New BMC” campaign which includes construction of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department. 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.
Please join me in support of Team BMC by donating whatever amount you can. I hope to see you along the course in April!
