EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Hi family and friends. I’m excited to share that after years of being a spectator, I will be running this year’s Boston Marathon. I am honored to meet this milestone with the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Gillian was one of the many innocent bystanders critically injured at the finish line in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. She was rushed to the Brigham where doctors and nurses worked heroically to save her life and both of her legs. The Reny family established this fund as a commitment to turning tragedy into hope and helping future patients like Gillian regain their strength, mobility, and spirit in order to step strong once again. You can learn more about the fund at BWHsteppingstrong.org.
I have pledged to raise $7,500 for this great cause that helps patients treated at my hospital, from my city and beyond. Please join me in making a difference in the lives of those with traumatic limb injuries and their families by advancing the mission of the Stepping Strong Fund -- to fuel innovative research and clinical programs in trauma healing and limb reconstruction.
I appreciate and thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to make and your encouragement along the way. I hope to see you somewhere on the course on April 20th!
