EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
THANK YOU for visiting my fundraising page! I can't believe in just a few weeks I will be running in my 10th marathon and 8th consecutive Boston Marathon. For the past 8 years, I have been fortunate enough to remain healthy, run Boston, and raise important dollars for some great local charities.
2015 is no exception. I am truly honored to be part of the Gillian Reny STEPPING STRONG Marathon Team. Gillian was severely injured at the finish line in 2013 with her parents by her side, while waiting for her sister to cross the finish line. Her story and her recovery inspires me every day to appreciate my health and my family. Her story has inspired every person she has touched since April 15, 2013. We take many things for granted, including the incredible hospitals in the Boston area. The Brigham and Women's Hospital saved Gillian's life and miraculously saved her legs. So what is the STEPPING STRONG fund and where do your generations donations go?
One hospital, two extraordinary marathon teams. This year, Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) is excited to assemble two outstanding Boston Marathon teams: the Life.Giving.Breakthroughs. Marathon Team, dedicated to raising funds across all disciplines and disease areas at BWH, and the Stepping Strong Marathon Team, initiated by a Boston Marathon bombing survivor and dedicated to fueling innovative research and clinical programs to advance trauma healing. A proud partner with the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.), our two teams are united in a powerful mission: to transform the future of medicine for patients and families here in Boston and around the world. Since 1998, BWH has raised more than $6.6 million through its marathon program, and in less than a year, the Stepping Strong Fund has raised more than $3.6 million. Make a difference in the lives of patients and families for generations to come by supporting the Life.Giving.Breakthroughs and Stepping Strong teams.
Thank you for supporting my run in 2015. It means so much to me and I look forward to turning Right on Hereford and Left on Boylston on April 20th!
