THE STORY:

About the Runner

Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. As many of you know, I have been a long distance runner since my high school Cross Country days. Though running is less competitive and more fun for me now, I still enjoy racing from time to time and have always toyed with the idea of tackling a marathon. Although the idea of running 26.2 consecutive miles is a little daunting, being a part of the MGH Marathon Team offers me the best kind of motivation I could ask for. This team gives me the opportunity to race for a greater cause and to give back to MGH as well as it's patient population in a very meaningful way.

Below, you can learn more about the MGH Marathon Team as well as the ways in which your donation will directly impact the lives of the hospital's youngest cancer patients. Please remember that your donations, no matter how great or small, are appreciated and will truly make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your support and I hope to see you cheering on April 16th! Also, i encourage you all to keep track of my training and progress over the next several weeks by visiting http://www.fundracingfinish.blogspot.com/

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.

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.
