ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I have loved running for many years. I’ve run 5k’s, 5 milers and half marathons, and now my goal is to add a marathon to that list. I'm thrilled to have been selected to run the 121st Boston Marathon as part of Team BMC! For years I lived along the marathon route and would cheer on the crowd of runners making its way towards Boylston Street. I look forward to experiencing that crowd in a different way this year. I hope you'll consider supporting me as I take on the challenge of not only running 26.2 miles, but also raising $10,000 to support Boston Medical Center!
Since 2002, Team BMC has proudly participated in Boston’s historic marathon, raising more than $3.8 million for hospital initiatives. The funds raised by this year’s marathon team will go directly towards expanding the Emergency Department, which cares for some of the most vulnerable patients in Boston. The current facility is undersized and overcrowded; it was built to handle only 60% of its current volume. The construction of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department will allow Boston Medical Center to maintain its role as the busiest provider of trauma and emergency services in the region. BMC is dedicated to providing exceptional care to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. By donating to Team BMC you are showing your commitment to the entire city of Boston.
As a physical therapist at Boston Medical Center, I see firsthand the exceptional care that is provided at this hospital. As both a provider and a patient, I am proud to be part of this institution!
I thank you in advance for your support, and I look forward to seeing you on Boylston Street!
