The 119th annual Boston Marathon will be my first time running 26.2 miles. As a former college athlete, I like to find new ways to stay competitive, and running - especially at long distances - is definitely a challenge. Growing up, I attended several Boston Marathons with my family, and in 2003, I watched as my mother achieved her goal of running a marathon at age 37. Twelve years later, she - along with my supportive family and friends - will be watching me cross the finish line.
I set a goal for myself to run a marathon by 25, and I'm so excited to be running it in just a year under my goal and for the Boston Medical Center, an extremely worthy institution that supports the people of Boston when they need it the most.
As part of the BMC Marathon team, I'm helping to raise money which will in part support the construction of a new emergency department. BMC handles more than two-thirds of Boston's major trauma cases annually - twice the amount of the other area hospitals combined. By helping me reach my goal of $5,000, you're enabling BMC to providing exceptional care, without exception to all who come through its doors.
The BMC is an academic medical center that is community dedicated to community based care. As the primary teaching affiliate to Boston University School of Medicine, the BMC provides a full range of pediatric to adult care services. To learn more about BMC, visit www.bmc.org.
