THE STORY:

The Marathon has always been on my "Bucket List"...Turning 50, was not, but you can't fight Father Time. This past year I decided to embrace my mid-life crisis and get back into shape. Somewhere along the way I started to think I could run 26 miles. Fast forward a few months and now I'm committed. I'm excited to run with the MGH Emergency Response Team and I hope you'll support my inner challenge; hell, it's cheaper than buying a convertable.

I'm not big on asking people for money but this is truly a great cause. I'm committed to the run and achieving my fundraising goal! Thanks for supporting me!

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

Following the tragedy of the 2013 marathon bombings, Mass General was fortunate to receive 40 guaranteed entries from the Boston Athletic Association to create an Emergency Response Marathon Team.  For the third year, thanks to John Hancock, Mass General will have 40 spots for runners on the Emergency Response Marathon Team. The funds raised provide critical support for emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness teaching and training at Mass General, efforts that benefit victims worldwide.

Team runners raise money to ensure that Mass General is ready for the next disaster – man-made or natural. Marathon funds support the training and resources needed to develop a carefully, integrated response that spans multiple departments throughout the hospital. “There’s no room for error,” says David Brown, MD, chief of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Mass General. “Our performance must be flawless. As in football, if one player of the 11 on the field doesn’t do the job, the play fails.”

At Mass General, we take emergency planning very seriously. Preparing for the next disaster takes much training and practice. And donors are critical to our success. Time spent training is not covered by insurance and often takes place outside work hours. Money raised by the Mass General Emergency Response team allows Mass General to ready at a moment’s notice.
