EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am running Boston! Many of you know this has been a lifelong goal of mine, and I couldn't be prouder to be running for MGH. This past year I was blessed with the oppurtunity to start a new position at MGH. I also joined a running club, and during one of my first group runs met a woman who was running Boston for the MGH Pedi Team. Her 3 year old son is in treatment here, and thanks to the many donors and researchers, his prognosis looks good! Since then we've become friends, running our long runs together during the snowy weekends.
I recently lost my grandmother, a woman who devoted her life to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren (all who, thankfully, are healthy). I am running in honor of Nana. My hope is that every child treated here at MGH gets to go home and enjoy time with their grandparents, parents, siblings and friends. Nan, don't worry, I'll be careful out there running!
Your support will help ensure children like my friend's get to go home and live healthy, long lives. Many thanks to all of you in advance!
