Being a Massachusetts native it has always been a goal of mine to run the Boston Marathon! Thanks to the support of my friends, family and you my goal will become a reality in April 2015.
When I was 7 years old I lost one of the most influential people in life, my grandfather (Charles LaVally), to Lymphoma. Every day cancer effects the lives of millions of people.
Running the Boston Marathon for MGH Pediatric Hematology and Oncology I will be raising money for cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for MGH's youngest cancer patients.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal and raise money to further cancer research!
I am 23 years old and live in Arlington, Virginia. I grew up in Bolton, Massachusetts, I am a recent graduate of Clemson University, and I currently work for Deloitte Consulting LLP in Technology Consulting. I love cycling, running, photography, and anything outdoors.

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-o
ncology 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!
