THE STORY:

On Sunday, June 26, hundreds of teammates will join together to run the 2016 Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) 10K road race to support Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). I have asked The Brigham to earmark those funds I raise for the Dr. Michael Davidson Memorial Fund, in support and remembrance of a slain physician colleague, shot while he was at work in January 2015 and unable to be rescued despite the amazing and heroic efforts of his own colleagues.

I feel that after the Boston running community and B.A.A. survived the marathon bombings without even one post-event fatality (which, by mass violence standards, is a statistical miracle and testament to the excellent trauma and crisis readiness of our medical community) there's something very appropriate about showing my personal support, as a physician and sometimes-runner, for a doctor who was a victim of fatal violence, on his own turf, doing his usual job. 

BWH cares for patients from New England, throughout the United States, and from 120 countries around the world. Every day, BWH clinicians, researchers, and caregivers work to find new ways to predict, prevent, and treat the most challenging diseases of our time while delivering world-class care with a profoundly human touch.
