ORGANIZER: Brigham and Women's Hospital
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am very excited to be running in the 2015 Boston Marathon. It is my first marathon and I am truly honored to have been chosen to be a runner on the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Team benefiting life-giving breakthroughs across all disciplines and disease areas at the hospital.
I am running in loving memory of my father who, unexpectedly passed away in 2011. My father was born and raised on the marathon route. Annual tradition included friends and family gathering on Heartbreak Hill to cheer the runners on. It was always his dream to see a member of our family run in the Boston Marathon. I am so proud of who my dad was and the impact he had on my life. My dad was such an accomplished and dedicated athlete, that all I want to do is honor him with setting endurance goals and achieving them.
This is the cause I have chosen as it touches my heart in a special way. I get goose bumps just thinking about all the lives changed because of the physicians and scientist at BWH. I will be pushing myself to complete this Marathon for not only my father, but also all the people who rely on medical discoveries, new cures, and treatments to continue to live each and every day.
$7,500 is a large amount of money, but it is nothing compared to the cost that goes into the life-saving research at Brigham and women's hospital.
In order to raise my goal of $7,500 I will need all of your help! A donation in any amount will be much appreciated!! I know that each and every one of you knows someone who has been affected by a life threatening illness that depend on the breakthrough research being conducted not only at BWH but all around the world. The only way we are going to continue funding these efforts is with your help!
I can't thank you enough for your support! Please share this page with anyone that you think may be interested in donating to such an amazing cause.
