ORGANIZER: Brigham and Women's Hospital
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Gaining entry to run the Boston Marathon is the first step toward fulfilling my lifelong dream of completing this world renowned course. Aside from this race being one of the most challenging and well known in the world, what sets it apart from many others is the level of dedication amongst participants to raise money for some of the most important institutions. For me, one of those is the Brigham and Women's Hospital as I have been given an opportunity to give back to the hospital that gave me the greatest gift of all, a place in this world! And that is where I call upon you to support me in helping to raise money for The Brigham!
Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) is excited to present two exceptional Boston Marathon teams this year: our core BWH Marathon Team, (which I am running for) 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, the 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. The Core team has only 75 Members and we were all hand selected from hundreds of applicants- I could not be more touched and honored to have made the final cut.
Helping me to support BWH and seeing you along the way toward 26.2 on my home turf would mean so much to me. Every little bit helps, and thinking of all of you while I am running will be the greatest fuel to push me through and cross the epic blue and yellow finish line on Boylston Street this spring!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! Your support means so much to me and BWH!
See you along the way in April 20th, 2015!!
