THE STORY:

18 years ago my cousin Kristin was diagnosed with Leukemia. She was treated by the wonderful doctors and nurses at Mass General. In 1997 her father, my cousin Danny, ran for the Leukimia and Lymphoma society, and in 1998 ran on the inaugural MGH Pediatric Oncology team. He continued to run for many years and in 2011 Kristin took over and became the first survivor to run for the team that helped save her life. In the process she inspired me to hit the pavement too. I am so excited to be a part of the team and continue the family tradition! Please consider a donation and help change the lives of these kids!

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

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!
