Hello friends, family, and anyone else who may be stumbling across this page!
As some of you may already know, or are just finding out now – I’ll be running in the 2014 Boston Marathon as part of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Marathon Team – and I couldn’t possibly be any more excited! As an employee of BIDMC, I am proud to be a part of a team that is working to fuel innovation and discovery within our medical research, expand our hospital’s clinical facilities, and extend patient cares to those in need.
To do this, I am running to raise money for The Annual Fund! 100% of all donations will go directly to the Annual Fund, and benefit the causes described both above and below. I have a goal to raise at least $7,500, but hopefully I can smash this out of the park with the help and support of wonderful people like you!
Here’s the hospital’s statement regarding The Annual Fund:
BIDMC depends on the Annual Fund to fulfill its mission of providing compassionate patient care. This fund raises unrestricted dollars that can be used immediately for a wide range of needs. They provide a reliable, steady source of funding for the programs that need it most:
- Promising research projects, such as cancer genetics investigations
- Annual operating costs, such as funding for social worker positions
- Career development opportunities for staff, such as continuing education scholarships for nurses
- Expansion of clinical spaces, like minimally invasive surgery suites
- Academic and teaching programs, such as fellowships for the next generation of physicians in growing service lines
