ORGANIZER: FORSYTH Institute
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
ONE AND DONE! For more decades than I care to admit I have had Boston Marathon envy. I’ve watched the buses filled with runners heading westbound on the Mass Pike to Hopkinton as I drove eastbound to work. I always thought I could do it and then I always came up with a reasons why I was driving the wrong way – they were all really good reasons, no really they were! This year I was offered the opportunity to run Boston and check this item off my bucket list. I’m ready for it!
I am also lucky enough to part of a team with a purpose greater than my own. It may be “One and Done” for me, but for those dedicating their time and energy to the Forsyth Institute, it is a journey of over 100 years. Help me to cross both the physical and financial finish lines through your contribution to the Forsyth Institute.
Oral Health research is a powerful platform for solving personal and community health challenges. The Forsyth Institute began its journey to improve oral health over 100 years ago. In that time, the Forsyth transformed oral health care practices, and discovered surprising links between oral conditions and global health threats like heart disease, diabetes, and even certain cancers and infectious diseases.
Oral health research is a powerful platform for solving personal and community health challenges.
