THE STORY:

Hello Friends and Family,

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I've been blessed with the opportunity of running in the 2017 Boston Marathon for charity. I will be fundraising on behalf of the Boston Medical Center and be a part of their Team BMC!

The opportunity was afforded to me through my employer BlackRock; whom will match all donations and has worked with the BMC facility since the 2013 Boston Bombing. The Boston Medical Center, who is the only public hospital in Boston, went above and beyond to treat members of BlackRock staff who were injured during the tragedy. We are sincerely grateful for what wonderful work they did and continue to do in the community.

As a veteran of the United States Marine Corps it is in my nature to help others in any way I can. Please join me in my efforts to raise funds for such an awesome cause! To keep top notch medical care like this going BMC relies on contributions from people like you and I. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Boston Medical Center wrote -

For the past 14 years, Boston Medical Center has proudly participated in Boston’s historic marathon, raising more than $3.8 million for the hospital. In 2016, BMC was fortunate to have 91 runners—a group of dedicated teammates, from New York to London to California, who pounded the pavement, crossed the finish line and helped raise more than $952,000. BMC is 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 Boston strong.

This year, philanthropic efforts from Team BMC will be dedicated to the hospital’s Building the New BMC campaign which will include the construction of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department for the region. Boston Medical is the busiest provider of trauma and emergency services in the region, with more than 130,000 emergency visits and more than 2,000 trauma admissions per year.

From the privately insured to the homeless, our Emergency Department and Level I Trauma Center offer outstanding care to patients from all walks of life. For many of our patients, our ER not only addresses acute medical issues, it serves as their primary care clinic where they seek treatment for everything from sore throats to sickle-cell disease. But when more severe problems arise, our Trauma Center is always prepared. In the wake of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, BMC Trauma responded immediately to eight patients’ life-threatening injuries and cared for 28 victims in total—all of whom survived. We were ready, because as Boston’s hospital for so many of the region’s most serious trauma cases, it’s the kind of work we do every day.

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 your commitment to the entire city of Boston.

Thank you for supporting Boston Medical Center in our mission to provide exceptional care, without exception!
