EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015

THE STORY:

The Boston Marathon is a highlight for any runner. Let's partner together to make it even more meaningful ...

In 2005, the world lost an amazing young man named David Goldstein after a 14-year battle with brain cancer. Throughout, David received loving care from Massachusetts General Hospital and Dr. Howard Weinstein.

It is my privilege to run the 2015 Boston Marathon to raise funds for Mass General Pediatric Oncology in honor of David, his family (who are my friends), and those who treated him.

I find the marathon a fitting tribute. Speaking of David, a relative wrote: “He taught me to never give up and never complain.” Those traits are essential to completing the 26.2 mile course.

Your donation of any size is a significant encouragement and help to a wonderful family, to me, to Mass General Hospital Pediatric Oncology, and to many brave patients and loved ones enduring deep challenges.

(The official Mass General Hospital information release can be seen below my signature.)

With sincere appreciation.

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.
