I have wanted to run the Boston Marathon since before I could remember. I just turned 25, as it is my quarter century birthday year I think it is fitting to be able to complete something that is so mentally and physically challenging. Since I have not run a marathon before, I needed a sponsor and wanted to choose a foundation that has an important significance to me. Atrius Health Foundation has a personal place in my heart as it is a mission driven foundation based on the values of improving the quality of healthcare through innovation and compassion. My father, Patrick Ryan is on the board of Atrius and has been in the healthcare industry for 33 years and has made a living improving the quality of healthcare. He has taught me the importance of innovation, caring for the community and compassion, and instilled upon me these values that are evident in Atrius’s mission. Now as I embark upon a career in healthcare at Press Ganey, a mission driven company I want to be able to advance this same mission by raising money for Atrius. I can’t think of a better foundation that allows me to both make a difference at the Atrius Health Foundation and helping Atrius Health medical groups to partner with your 700,000 patients to make it easier to be healthy and to work with Press Ganey to improve the Patient Experience and the continuum of care as a whole.
I am very excited to finish the 117th Boston Marathon and more importantly to raise money for Atrius Health Foundation! Please help me reach my goal of raising $10,000 by donating today!
