THE STORY:

Gillian Reny was probably one of the thousands cheering me to my first Boston Marathon finish in 2013. As I crossed the line and a volunteer put a medal around my neck, I couldn't wait to celebrate with my friends and husband.  Then disaster struck.  And my life would never be the same.  And Gillian's life would never be the same.  

I knew I wanted to get back to Boston and finish the story that I started there. I ran my heart out and qualified by 31 small little seconds.  But my good wasn't good enough. Due to a large number of applicants, my qualifying time was not fast enough to earn me a spot.

So what?  So I fought for spot on this charity team and am humbled that I am accepted.  

I don't even know Gillian, but I know we are both fighers.  I am inspired by Gillian's stories of perserverence and resiliance. Because of the innovation and exceptional care at the Brigham and Women's hospital, Gillian avoided amputation and is now a college student.

On April 21st 2015 I run 26.2 miles for Gillian.  I run for Olivia, a beautiful little girl who suffers from a disease that robs her from the joy of running.  I run with my husband, who is running for Team in Training.  I run for Tyler and Sam, my kids, to show them that mommy is not scared "of the bad men".  I run for my friends and family that love me unconditionally and stand behind me.  I run for a community that I am proud to be a part of. 

Most of all, I run for Boston.  Boston Strong!

Thank you for your consideration.  No amount is too small.

A proud partner with the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.), Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) is excited to present two exceptional Boston Marathon teams this year: our core BWH Marathon Team, which supports life-giving breakthroughs across all disciplines and disease areas at the hospital; and the Stepping Strong Marathon Team, initiated by a Boston Marathon bombing survivor, which fuels innovative research and clinical programs in trauma healing and limb reconstruction at BWH. Since 1998, our BWH Marathon Team has raised more than $6.6 million to support world-class patient-centered care, groundbreaking research, community programs, and education for the next generation of healthcare leaders. Thank you for supporting this transformational work.
