EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for the 2015 Boston Marathon; I am so excited to be taking on this challenge again! It's been 5 years since I have completed my first marathon as a member of Team Brigham and now that life has settled back down I am ready to attempt this feat again. My first marathon in 2010 was such a life changing and memorable experience, I didn't think twice about running again in 2011. After having to withdraw 6 weeks before race day due to injury, I was devastated all my training efforts were for nothing. However, from that I gained mental toughness and still contributed to my team by cheering on my fellow teammates and by continuing to reach my fundraising goals. This year, the race will have new meaning. This time, it's not about maximizing training or setting a new PR, it will simply be about returning to a sport and race that I love, staying healthy in the process, raising money for an amazing organization and, of course, enjoying the ride! My excitement, dedication and passion have been renewed, and I can feel the jitters creeping back in as if it was the first time again!
I hope you will support me in this endeavor by making a donation to support Team Brigham and BWH's Life Giving Breakthroughs. Brigham and Women’s hospital Marathon team has a long standing partnership with the B.A.A. and since its inception in 1998, the team has raised more than $6.6 million to support world-class patient-centered care, groundbreaking research, community programs, and education for future providers. This year, our sights are set high and hope to surpass $7 million dollars. By joining the team, I have committed to raising $7,500. As you can imagine, this is no small feat, and I am relying on the generosity and support of you all to help me reach my fundraising goal and to help me cross that iconic finish line on Boylston Street on April 20th.
