THE STORY:

As a volunteer in the finish line medical tent during the 2013 marathon I witnessed first hand the importance of emergency response. The bravery, efficiency, compassion and sense of calm the first responders brought to our tent that day was incredible. In an atmosphere of indescribable horror and crisis, they performed flawlessly; thanks to successful training and resources. I have the privilege of fundraising to support this type of preparation to ensure every disaster has as remarkable of a response. 

The Boston Marathon (to me) is the city's most exciting annual event. It is a parade of Boston pride and unity. This will be my first marathon and despite harsh winter training conditions, I am confident that with the support of my teammates, friends, family and my passion for this cause and this city I will be successful.

Please support me as I prepare for April 20, 2015! Donations of any amount are appreciated!

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

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.
