I am inspired to run for the BWH Stepping Strong Team because of my identical twin sister, Tate. When we were 15 years old, she sustained a mild traumatic brain injury skiing. As a result of this, Tate missed almost 18 months of school due to the severity of her symptoms. At times she was unable to walk properly, read, or even regulate her heartbeat. Although her healing process has been a long and arduous one with many setbacks, Tate has been able to resume a normal life. I continue to be inspired by her progress and determination in living her life to the fullest despite the symptoms from her head injury that still affect her. Because of my sister, I would like to raise money to help others that have been affected by traumatic events.
Any donation, no matter how big or small, will greatly contribute to The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation. This center has raised over 12 million dollars for the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA. I will be running for the BWH Stepping Strong Team for the 2018 Boston Marathon to help fundraise. This is a cause close to my heart and I am very grateful for your contribution. I encourage you to visit this link in order to learn more about the remarkable work The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation continues to do.
