BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am excited to be running in the 2015 Boston Marathon, along with my niece Sarah Huntington and my friend Alyssa Smart. We will be raising money for Boston Medical Center - an essential part of Boston's medical ecosystem. BMC was instrumental in responding to the bombing in 2013, and it is working to make its ability to respond to the emergency needs of everyone in the Boston area even better! There could have been no better example, as unpleasant as it was, of the need for a hostpital like BMC, and how lucky we are to have it. I am proud to work to ensure even better services and capabilities are available to Bostonians in the future.
Please sponsor me (or Sarah or Alyssa) in this great cause. See you at the finish line!

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!
