EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Anyone who donates $10 or more to my campaign will be entered into a drawing to NAME A GREAT WHITE SHARK! *Winner will be announced on Marathon Monday.
It's truly a privilege to be on this team and to be running for my patient partner, two year old Jordyn (pictured here). My connection to this program comes through the nonprofit I co-founded, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC). With the goal of brightening the childrens' day, AWSC works with MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) to schedule regular 'Great White Shark Visits' to the Pediatric Hematology & Oncology floor.
Inspired by the amazing MGHfC staff that I've worked with, I joined the 2015 Boston Marathon Team to raise funds for this incredible program. This will be my first marathon and I can't think of a better reason to train for and run 26.2 miles!
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.
Please support my run and this incredible program by donating today!
