BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL

ORGANIZER: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

Never say no to one more mile. Never say no to one more request for the MassGeneral Hospital for Children.

This year I am running in my 4th Boston Marathon and 6th marathon overall. I am running for a great kid named Timmy Dowdy. He's nine years old and has leukemia. Luckily, he has a bright prognosis and is likely to make a full recovery.

As lucky as Timmy is, his path was made possible by the generous donations to the Mass General Marathon Team and, as a result, to the Children's Oncology and Hematology Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. Donations to this charity go to help the patients and their families.

Won't you take a moment and donate? I am trying to raise $5000, which seems like a very big goal for me. Every bit helps.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Cheers,

Orlee

MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM

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 Hospitalfor 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.

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.
