BENEFITING: Brigham and Women's Hospital
ORGANIZER: Brigham and Women's Hospital
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I'm proud to be once again joining the BWH Marathon Team for this great cause. I'm dedicating my run to the memory of my dad, Mark, a longtime patient at Brigham and Women's who benefited from their top-notch, cutting edge care. The doctors, nurses, and patient care teams became an extended family for us, and we feel exceptionally lucky for all they gave us. Dad always said he wanted his illness to lead to better experiences for patients, doctors, and nurses, and this is a small way for me to give back.
Having been a specator on Boylston Street in 2013, I'm also running in honor of all of those who overcame so much, and of the doctors, nurses, and staff who worked tirelessly in the weeks, months, and now years since.
Brigham and Women's life-giving breakthroughs have given us and so many others so much. This is my way of giving back just a little.
