BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Running a marathon has been a goal of mine for the past few years, and there is no better marathon to run than Boston. I have called the City of Boston my home for the past six years and being able to participate in one of its biggest events is an incredible feeling. I chose to run for TEAM BMC because I have worked at Boston Medical Center for the past three years and I get to witness first hand all the dedication of the hospital's employees to provide exceptional care for all people.
I am proud to work at BMC, not only because of their exceptional response to the Marathon Bombings, but also because they provide the most essential thing in life to all people, regardless of whether they can afford it or not, HEALTH.
Please support me in my goal to raise money to make BMC an even better place to give and receive care.
Thank you all for your support and time! #BMCSTRONG

26.2 MILES TO A NEW BMC!
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!
