I always dreamed of running the Boston Marathon, but with every year that came and went I didn't think I would be able to do it, or gave myself a silly excuse; like it was never a good enough time. But this year, I have decided to step out of every comfort zone I have ever known and I'm starting with this one.
Working in the medical field has taught me a lot of things, but the most important thing being that nothing is ever promised for tomorrow. Life is short, bad things happen with no warning, and no explaination. I am reminded everyday to be grateful for the things I have in my life, and the opportunities that are put in my path. I have decided to waste no more time daydreaming about these things, and making them real life.
So this April, I am going to run for those who can't. I will be pushed every step of every mile, thinking of all the lives who have touched mine, all the patients I have cared for who lay in a hospital bed fighting for their lives, or who are recovering from a traumatic accident and may never be able to walk again.
I am going to run for Team BMC who raises money to support the hospital, working to expand and update our emergency room, which is a Level I Trauma Center and gives our patients the best chance of survival. Funds are also shared with A Child Life Program which focuses on hospitalized children and their families during stressful stays.
I'm writing in hopes that a donation is made to help me reach a fundraising goal of $5,000.00. Every little bit helps, and I am super thankful for all of the love and support I have gotten thus far. Hope to see you out there along the way, I'll have Notorious BIG cranked up real loud, but my eyes will be peeled for some familiar faces! Thank you in advance :)
lots of love xoxo
