Dear Family and Friends,
I am so excited to share with you that I have been selected to run the 2015 Boston Marathon for the Brigham and Women's Hospital Research Team, and I am hoping that you will contribute to our cause! This team raises money for medical research across ALL disciplines and diseases, including cancer research, heart disease, diabetes management, obesity and maternal-child wellness. These medical breakthroughs are delivered to the bedside at your local hospitals around the country making this research relevant to people from Grand Rapids, MI to Portsmouth, NH to San Diego, CA. Since 1998, the BWH Marathon Team has raised more than $6.6 million to support world-class patient-centered care, groundbreaking research and education for the next generation of healthcare leaders - please help me continue the tradition!
A few years ago I was a member of a different part of this team. I used to work as a nurse on the 12th Floor of Brigham and Women's Hospital. A part of my role was working with researchers to deliver innovative care in the area of heart disease, such as the use of pulmonary artery catheters in the management of advanced heart failure patients. It was my privilege to have been a part of the Brigham team that continues to make incredible strides in cardiac care, and I am thrilled to have another chance to be on that team. I believe in this hospital and its researchers, doctors, nurses and support staff that positively impact the lives of patients every day, please help me make a contribution to their continued work by sponsoring me in the race!
Please consider making a tax deductable donation to support me while I train and run for this fantastic organization. Thank you for supporting this transformational work!
