BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am so excited to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon to benefit Boston Medical Center. I am running with family and friends for ‘JP’s Team’ as a part of Team BMC. By supporting my run with a donation to BMC, you are showing your commitment to the entire city of Boston, and healthcare without discrimination. Any gift, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated!
JP is a close family friend who was injured during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and was treated at Boston Medical Center. He experienced first-hand BMC’s mantra of offering ‘exceptional care, without exception.’ JP made a full recovery thanks to the excellent physicians and staff at BMC, and our Team members are honored to fundraise in his name for BMC.
I am also personally connected to BMC as a lab technician at the Boston University/Boston Medical Center’s Center for Regenerative Medicine (CReM). The CReM uses stem cell research in various regenerative medicine fields to model and study diseases with the goal of providing better patient treatments. We work to further BMC’s exceptional care agenda.
In my lab at BMC, I have the privilege not only to see innovative scientific research first-hand, I also personally know and work with a number of the dedicated physicians who provide quality care at BMC. As the safety net hospital of Boston and the biggest Emergency Department and Level 1 Trauma Center in the region, BMC cares for patients from all walks of life. BMC physicians do not discriminate based on whether or not a person can pay for their medical treatment, and even more importantly, they do not comprise quality of care for any individual, regardless of socioeconomic background. The physicians and staff members I know at BMC are exceptionally kind and hard working people who truly walk-the-walk when it comes to providing ‘exceptional care, without exception.’
It is a privilege to be fundraising and running for Team BMC and I hope you’ll consider supporting my efforts. Many thanks!
