BENEFITING: THE UMASS MEMORIAL FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: May 15, 2016
Dear Friends & Family,
On May 15 I will be running the Maine Coast Marathon in support of our local Pediatric Unit at UMass Memorial Children's Center. Running a marathon has been a lifelong goal of mine and I couldn't think of a better way to give back to our community. I am enjoying training for this experience in support of the pediatric patients at UMass Memorial and am looking forward to race day!
UMass Memorial's Child Life Unit supports the educational and social needs of the youngest patients visiting the hospital. Thanks to the Child Life team, patients and their families enjoy special events, entertainment, tutoring services and pet therapy programs. They provide a child friendly and family centered environment that provides recreational, therapeutic and medical play opportunities to help children and families cope with their hospital stay and medical needs. Gifts go a long way toward making the hospital a less threatening place and brightening a child's stay. Your gift is greatly appreciated and makes a big difference in a child's hospital stay.
Thank you for your support!
