BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I have some very exciting news…I am honored to be running the 2015 Boston Marathon – the most premiere marathon in the world - with the BlackRock for Boston Medical Center (BMC) team. I am a huge fan of the tradition and what it means to the City of Boston, and it is by far my favorite day of the year to be a Bostonian.
When I told my two young sons, bursting with pride and joy, that I was planning to run the marathon, the look on their faces was the exact opposite of what I had expected. They asked me not to run because they are afraid that there could be more bombs. Life can be short and some deaths are senseless. I run to show my two healthy boys that our city is safe and strong and that we have little to fear. I run to raise money for Boston Medical Center because they took excellent care of the people injured in the 2013 attack on our City, and continue to save lives each and every day.
Thank you in advance for any support that you are able to provide, financially or emotionally - I will most definitely need both. I have a personal goal of raising $5,000, which breaks-down to approximately $190 per mile. For those able to sponsor a mile (or more!), I would love to carry the name of each person through the race, or dedicate the mile(s) to someone close to you. Each mile I can dedicate to someone will be the added motivation I need to get through training during the cold New England winter. If you want to sponsor a specific mile, let me know. Perhaps, mile 21 - Heartbreak Hill!
