THE STORY:

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

NEW ANNOUNCEMENT: The MassGeneral Hospital for Children Cancer Center is proud to announce the launch of the Mrs. Catherine Pappas and Family Pediatric Oncology Challenge. This dollar-for-dollar match up to $200,000 is very exciting and timely. The Challenge will support the MGH Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic and the Child Life Program.

How it works: If someone donates $26 to the team or an individual runner, an additional matching gift of $26 will go directly to the clinic. Contributions made in any amount to support the MGH Pediatric Cancer team will have an even bigger impact in these final days of fundraising. Please spread the word to your friends, family and co-workers to make a gift now.

ABOUT THE 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.

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!
