THE STORY:

It has always been a dream of mine to run the Boston Marathon, emphasis on DREAM!  Growing up I was never a runner.  The only running I did was in gym, when we had to run a mile in under ten minutes, or do it again.  That was the first mile I ever ran and the last one for many years.  After college I started running more, barely making it around the block.  But over the past decade I have slowly increased my running and have run three half marathons and finally feel that a marathon is no longer a dream but my goal.  I have committed to running the 2015 Boston Marathon and raising money for Mass General’s pediatric hematology-oncology program. 

A little Bit About the Mass General Marathon Team

Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock, the Mass General Marathon Team...Fighting Kids’ Cancer, One Step at a Time...has raised over $10 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). Funds raised are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.

Thanks in large part to the philanthropic dollars raised by the Mass General Marathon Team...Fighting Kids’ Cancer One Step at a Time.... MGHfC is advancing cutting-edge research, increasing the number of clinical studies to improve cure rates, and providing the best treatment possible to pediatric cancer patients. MGHfC is also focused on the quality of life of its young patients and their families through the child life program, which utilizes therapeutic play - music and art therapy to help pediatric cancer patients and their families cope emotionally and developmentally with their illnesses.

This year, more patients than ever before utilized Child-Life services, which indicates the growing popularity of the programming, the recognition of its importance, and the program’s ability to continue to expand its offerings.

Please support me by donating to Mass General’s Pediatric Cancer program and sending encouraging thoughts as I embark on this 26.2 mile journey.

Mass General and Boston...Together We Finish!
