EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Being a part of the Mass. General Hospital Pediatric Cancer Center Boston Marathon teams in 2014 & 2015 were probably the most fulfilly endeavors I have ever been a part of. I took a break in 2016, and I regretted it. Once again, I am running the 2017 Boston Marathon to raise money for the Mass. General Hospital Pediatric Cancer Center. Our team is hoping to raise over $1 million dollars, with a big chunck of that money funding a very important quality of life program for the patients and familes of the MGH Pediatric Cancer Center. The Child Life Program utilizes therapeutic play - music and art therapy to help pediatric cancer patients and their families cope emotionally and developmentally with their illnesses.
My mother was treated at the Mass General Cancer Center during her valiant battle with this awful disease in 2003-2004. I will always be grateful to the wonderful doctors and staff there for the treatment that they gave her. Trying to raise a couple of bucks to help these brave children is the least that I can do.
Thank you very much for considering a donation. I appreciate the continued support.
