THE STORY:

Boston Medical Center wrote -

26.2 MILES TO A NEW BMC!

________________________________________________________________

On April 15, 2013, JP Craven was standing 12 feet from the first bomb, waiting for his father, Joe Craven, to cross the finish line.  JP, who is a teacher at St. Sebastian's School in Needham, MA, was knocked unconscious, with shrapnel hitting him throughout, but especially the right side of his face.  The heat of the blast set his clothes on fire and severely damaged his right ear - and the blast permanently took away some of his hearing.  Thankfully, JP was taken to Boston Medical Center where the great doctors did emergency surgery that night, extracting the shrapnel which nearly pierced his skull.  After several more surgergies, he was released the following Saturday. Over the course of the year, with the support of so many - including St. Sebastian's, the people of Hingham,, and his Davidson College baseball teammates, JP recovered well - and we feel very fortunate.

JP's Team was formed in 2014 to support the great work of Boston Medical Center - and had 8 runners participate - including JP himself, his father and his sister, Deirdre.  JP's Team raised over $126,000 for BMC - and when combined with our runners - raised almost $170,000.  So, we decided to do it again in 2015 - and now have 15 runners, including repeat runners - JP's father and sister - and this year we have the support of runners from BlackRock's Boston office - where JP's father works.  Also, this year, JP's girlfriend Kelli O'Donohue, as well as his high school friends Dan Hebert and Mike Battaglia, will be running.

We need your help again.  Boston Medical Center is the glue that keeps the City of Boston going.  It is Boston's only public hospital - and provides Exceptional Care, Without Exception to many who are underserved and the community as a whole.  Please join with us - and root for us on April 20th. Thank you.
