THE STORY:

Hi Everyone,

For the third year I'm running the Boston Marathon in suport of the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC).  The center treats over 2,500 children a year and needs your support to fund their Child-Life program.  Please see below for more information on the MGH Marathon Team and the Child Lile Program.  I have three goals for my run this year.  First and most important is reaching my fundraising goal.  Second is running the marathon in under 3 hours and 5 minutes so I can qualify for the 2013 Boston Marathon.  This will allow me to fundraise for the team again without using one of their 100 charity numbers donated by John Hancock Financial.  The third goal is to see at least one non-family member (Thanks to my family members and especially Meghan for the support each year before and during the marathon) along the 26.2 mile route.  If you can help me with goal 1 and 3 I'll take care of goal number 2.  Thanks for your support and I hope to see you on the donation page

 

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.

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.
