THE STORY:

I am honored to have been selected again as a runner for the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Emergency Response Team (MGH-ERT).

My involvement with the team began on April 15, 2013 as I participated in the emergency response to the terrorist attack at the finish of the Boston Marathon. While it was a tragic day, the dedication of emergency responders and volunteers I witnessed will stay with me forever. In the chaos after the explosions, these people displayed the best of humanity.  

After finishing the Boston Marathon last year as an MGH-ERT runner, I decided to make this a tradition in honor of brave people who put their lives on the line to save others. This year, I will run in memory of two very special individuals – my friend and firefighter brother Roy Matiya, and my dear colleague and fellow marathoner Dr. Michael J. Davidson. I am also running in honor of my first responder family from the Nassau Bay Fire Department

I met Roy as we served together with the Nassau Bay Fire Department (TX). He was a unique individual who gave all of himself to help people when they needed it most. I will forever cherish Roy’s kindness, quick wit, wisdom, and above all, his compassion. Roy perished in a house fire at his home only weeks after he retied from the fire service. Mike was my colleague at the Division of Cardiac Surgery, Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, and a fellow Boston Marathon finisher in 2010. He was tragically killed by a gunman while performing his clinical duties and tending to a patient's family member.

Roy and Mike were both emergency responders - in different ways and facilities - but deeply dedicated to the same goal of saving lives. They left us who stayed behind with a debt of gratitude for their service and what they stood for. For that, they should be celebrated forever.

Please join me in honoring the memory of Roy, Mike, and our emergency responder family everywhere who put their lives on the line to save others. The funds we raise will provide critical support for emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness training at Mass General Hospital that will benefit people worldwide.

Thank you!
