BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL
ORGANIZER: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
I'm running the 2014 Boston Marathon. Please join me in raising money for a worthy cause, as an illustration that we choose resiliency in the face of those tragic events of last year.
I'm raising funds for Mass General Hospital, and in particular, their Emergency Response Fund. In the wake of those tragic events, dedicated MGH employees provided emergency medical care to 39 of the victims, whose very future was in their caring hands. What is often lost in the narrative, is not only the work of those dedicated professionals, but the ongoing needs of victims, their families, and the lack of resources for disaster preparedness in general.
The MGH Emergency Response Fund was established to support Mass General’s immediate response to devastating events such as the Boston Marathon tragedy. Funds will be used to provide social services support for victims and families of disasters and will support emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness training.
It's a noble cause, and a unique opportunity to support the Boston Marathon as an event, the victims of that terrible day, their families, and disaster preparedness in general.
