BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I have been given the amazing opportunity to run as part of Team BMC this year and I am so excited! It is my first year running with the organization and have every intention to make it an awesome one! Boston Medical Center is a truly wonderful organization providing top of the line health care to those in need of it. "Exceptional care. Without exception." is a motto that just in itself says so much. It is an institution with a staff that works tirelessly to provide primary care to those in need as well as running a 24 hour trauma center that is the busiest in New England, with over 130,000 emergency visits annually. Their work doesn't end there; after treating patients the staff at BMC works to play an active role in their patients' re-integration into everyday life. They truly care about the people who come through their doors, even after they have gone back out them. I witnessed this firsthand while visiting the facility, where I saw a dedicated staff committed to help those who need it in every way they can. This year, I am running the marathon to raise money for this institution and I hope that you will consider contributing to the cause. Over the last 12 years, the team has raised $2.16 million for Boston Medical Center. I hope that you'll consider donating to my page this year and help the team continue to raise funds for the organization.
If you would like to donate, you may do so directly on this fundraising page or via cash/check. Checks should be made payable to Boston Medical Center and sent to the address listed below.

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!
