THE STORY:

Why I Run

As a marathon runner and spectator, my favorite aspect of race day is the roar of the crowd. A marathon is a unique experience where runners, spectators, and volunteers alike come together to celebrate the strength of the ebullient human spirit. We cheer, we high-five, we celebrate; ultimately, we band together as one. My marathon experience has taught me the power of a “Go Sean!” when you hit that inevitable wall in the back half of the course that all but stops you in your tracks. That stranger yelling your name as proudly and energetically as they would for their son, their best friend or their brother is illustrative of the miracle of Marathon Monday where an entire city becomes a family. As an audiologist at The Brigham, I am honored to work with my patients to overcome obstacles and challenges related to hearing and balance. I understand the great importance hearing has on communication, and in turn how communication can bring people together. With current hearing aid technologies, we can help patients integrate back into social situations that may have been avoided out of embarrassment or frustration. On April 20th, I will gain strength from my patients who break through barriers and challenge themselves. They will be my inspiration.  

From Brigham and Women's:

One hospital, two extraordinary marathon teams. This year, Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) is excited to assemble two outstanding Boston Marathon teams: the Life.Giving.Breakthroughs. Marathon Team, dedicated to raising funds across all disciplines and disease areas at BWH, and the Stepping Strong Marathon Team, initiated by a Boston Marathon bombing survivor and dedicated to fueling innovative research and clinical programs to advance trauma healing. A proud partner with the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.), our two teams are united in a powerful mission: to transform the future of medicine for patients and families here in Boston and around the world. Since 1998, BWH has raised more than $6.6 million through its marathon program, and in less than a year, the Stepping Strong Fund has raised more than $3.6 million. Make a difference in the lives of patients and families for generations to come by supporting the Life.Giving.Breakthroughs and Stepping Strong teams.
