THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am honored and SO excited to be running The Boston Marathon 2015 with the Mass General Hospital Emergency Response Team! I was given this opportunity once before and ran with Spaulding Rehab Hospital, however because of tragic events was unable to finish that day... only making it to mile 21. What is more special to me than anything, is that I've been given another chance to raise money for a wonderful charity, that happened to be created out of those same tragic events. Not only that, but I have been given another chance to run the Boston Marathon, and this time, I intend to finish! Any amount you can donate makes a difference, no quantity to small. Thank you endlessly for your support, financial and emotional! 

**A Note from Massachusetts General Hospital**

Following the tragedy of the 2013 marathon bombings, Mass General was fortunate to receive 40 guaranteed entries from the Boston Athletic Association to create an Emergency Response Marathon Team.  For the second straight year, thanks to John Hancock, Mass General will have 40 spots for runners on the Emergency Response Marathon Team. The funds raised provide critical support for emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness training at Mass General, efforts that benefit victims worldwide.

Team runners raise money to ensure that Mass General is ready for the next disaster – man-made or natural. Marathon funds support the training and resources needed to develop a carefully, integrated response that spans multiple departments throughout the hospital.

“There’s no room for error,” says David Brown, MD, chief of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Mass General. “Our performance must be flawless. As in football, if one player of the 11 on the field doesn’t do the job, the play fails.”

At Mass General, we take emergency planning very seriously. Preparing for the next disaster takes much training and practice. And donors are critical to our success. Time spent training is not covered by insurance and often takes place outside work hours. Money raised by the Mass General Emergency Response team allows Mass General to ready at a moment’s notice.
