THE STORY:

My name is Jill Gurnon and I am running the Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017!!  This year I turned 40!!  And trust me, turning the big 4-0 is a big deal.  Some people treat themselves to a trip to Vegas, a weekend at a spa resort, a nice David Yurman ring (which I still want btw), instead I have come up with the best "I turned 40" bucket list item - run the Boston Marathon.  And I am running to bring awareness to a cause that is currently effecting every community and sadly most families.

I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon on behalf of the Boston Medical Center! They're an incredible organization for many reasons but one that particularly stands out to me is their head-on approach to our opioid epidemic.  This epidemic is one that now day after day touches someone in one way or another.  It may be a family member, friend, co-worker or neighbor.  It's an epidemic that doesn't discriminate and is now seen in every population.   As you know the Boston Marathon has become an incredible symbol of strength in our community and together we will fight! 

I am humbled to accept the challenge of teaming up with the Boston Medical Center.  Your support means the absolute world to me.  I truly appreciate any donation you are able to make.  Together we will support the Boston Medical Center and all they do. 

Watching the Boston Marathon?  Please look for me! I will be running with a red bandana to personally honor Welles Crowther, a true American hero who put his life aside to save at least a dozen others on September 11, 2001 as well as to honor those who have lost their lives to the opioid epidemic or are currently fighting the battle. 

Thank you for viewing my page, taking the time to ready my story and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your donation.  Together we will make a difference.

Below is some additional information you will find useful in learning more about the Boston Medical Center.

 

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!
