THE STORY:

Some say stubborn. I say determined. 

Why would you ever want to run a marathon? Are you nervous for the hills? Will you have to run all winter? Are you crazy? 

Crazy. Stubborn. Dedicated. Passionate. I like to think they are all the same when it comes to the Boston Marathon. I am so incredibly honored to be running this year for #TeamBMC. 

It's been 5 years since my first (and only) Boston Marathon, and a lot has happened since that finish line. The last few years have been a time of tumultuous change and personal fortitude that have given me strength I didn't know I possessed. With the right support structure, I learned that you really can change your life for the better.

Now, it's my turn to pay it forward. 

I wanted to fundraise for a charity I believed in. A charity that digs deep and fights battles every single day for the people who maybe can't on their own. A charity that gives a voice to the people that are continuously silenced. When I learned about the number of programs set up for the most underserved population of our city - for victims of domestic violence, children in trauma, behaviorial issues, people with nowhere else to turn - I knew I had found my spot. 

Thank you in advance for your support!

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!
