THE STORY:

Welcome to my fundraising page! I’m thrilled to be running my first marathon with the Mass General Pediatric Cancer Marathon Team. Right now I am equal parts excited and nervous about running those 26.2 miles, but I know that being part of the MGH team will help motivate and inspire me throughout my training.

I’ve been involved in various sports for my entire life, but a serious back injury prevented me from running until a couple years ago. It has felt wonderful to conquer something I once never thought I’d be able to do. With four half marathons under my belt, I now feel ready to take on this even loftier challenge.

I am grateful to be able bodied and healthy enough to train for the marathon, but I know that there are so many people who do not have this privilege. The young people at MGHfC who are being treated for cancer are at the forefront of my mind as I embark on my marathon journey.

You never know whose life has been affected by childhood cancer. Please help me fundraise to support the care, comfort, and groundbreaking treatment provided for kids with cancer at MGH.

Many thanks,

Alli

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.

We are grateful for the hard work of all of our runners and the dedication of their family and friends, as they embark on fundraising and training for the historic 26.2 mile. Mass General and Boston...Together We Finish!
