THE STORY:

Hey friends!

Thanks for visiting my page! I just couldn't stay away from being a part of a team, and I'm proud to be running the Boston Marathon for the MGH Emergency Response Team in honor of my hospital and my city.

During the 2013 Boston Marathon, I was standing near the finish line when the bombs went off. In the hours and days after the tragedy, I was inspired by how our city came together to rally around those affected and support the brave first responders and law enforcement officials who ran towards the scene instead of away from it. That day, I went from being a stranger in a new city to understanding what makes Boston so special. Every year, watching the marathon reminds me how lucky I am to call this resilient city my home.

This year, I have been humbled to work with and learn from the team of dedicated healthcare providers at MGH. Emergency medicine is a tough and important field. Providers work long, unpredictable hours, coordinate efforts across large teams, and integrate complex information to make hard decisions that can make or break patient outcomes. The Emergency Department at MGH provides 24/7 high-quality patient care today, while conducting cutting edge research to improve emergency response tomorrow. Your contribution will go directly to one of the most complex and critical departments at the hospital.

Thank you so much for your support! Together we are #BostonStrong.

-Hope

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.
