THE STORY:

Hello to my wonderful teammates and supporters! A quick note about my 2012 Boston Marathon fundraising project for MGH: I'm going to be running about 500 miles in training for this race, so I'm going to be dedicating all of my miles in training to my contributors. For every $10 contributed, I will run a mile in your honor. On the day I run your honorary miles, you'll receive an email from me with a story or quote from Martin Duffy, my dear friend and coach, and 40-time Boston Marathoner, who was treated at MGH for HPV-engendered cancer. He passed away in November 2010 and will always be a huge part of my inspiration to run, stay healthy and inspire others to live healthy lives as well. My goal is nothing less than 40 consecutive Bostons - I ran this past April as a guest of the race committee and I've committed myself to helping MGH in my future Bostons. Please join me in remembering a wonderful role model and in helping a new generation of cancer survivors to lead long, productive, happy lives.

Warmest wishes to you,

Nicole

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.
