BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL

ORGANIZER: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

Aaron Paul

THE STORY:

Family and Friends,

On April 16, 2012 I will be running the Boston Marathon as a member of the Mass General Marathon Team. I'm running to raise money for the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at Mass General Hospital for Children. All funds benefit pediatric cancer research, the child life program, art and music therapy, and support groups for patients and their families. Your donation will be put to good use and will provide me with motivation to train for my first marathon during the cold winter months in Boston.

Donating through this site is fast, simple and secure. It is the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts.

I appreciate your support and please don't hesitate to pass along a link to my fundraising website to anyone who might also be interested in donating to this wonderful cause.

Sincerely,

Aaron

About the Marathon Team

Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock Financial, the Mass General Marathon Team has raised over $6.7 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. Apply to run on the 2012 Mass General Marathon Team today!

Patient-Partner Program

The MassGeneral Marathon Team is centered around the Marathon Patient-Partner Program, in which runners are paired with patients undergoing cancer treatment at MGHfC. When our runners set out on Boston’s grueling 26.2-mile course, they not only raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research; they inspire and bring hope to the youngest patients we serve.

Last year, 50 children undergoing treatment were paired with Mass General runners. Some runners take part to support young patients they already know and love while others bond with a courageous child they have never met through the Patient-Partner Program. At an emotional pre-race pasta party and ceremony on the night preceding the marathon, runners presented a medal of honor to their patient-partner. It symbolizes a shared personal commitment in the fight against pediatric cancer, and represents all the hope we have that our efforts at Mass General will lead to a cure for this devastating disease.

The Child-Life Program

The Child-Life Program within the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at MGHfC benefits every year from the funds raised by the Marathon Team. The program utilizes therapeutic play — including music and art therapy, massage and acupuncture — 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, an indication of the growing popularity of the programming, the recognition of its importance and the program’s ability to continue to expand its offerings — thanks in large part to philanthropic dollars.
