THE STORY:

Our daughter Kate was a competitive Team USA swimmer and several years ago, a patient in the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital CardioVascular Intensive Care Unit. I have been fund-raising to support cardiac research ever since by competing in long distance running and cycling events.


On July 10th to the 12th, a team of us will be competing in what is billed as Badwater, the World's Toughest Running Race which takes place in Death Valley for 135 miles, crosses 3 mountain ranges, from 282 feet below sea level to the finish at Whitney Portal at 8,500 feet. This is our 3rd Badwater race...last time the temperature was 123F!


Kate is now college sophomore in an RN degree program and has completed a student nurse summer internship in Cardiac Pediatrics and this summer will be participating in a summer research internship at Brigham and Women's hospital in Boston. I am very committed to supporting and fundraising for Dr. MacRae, a cardiologist and geneticist whose clinical interests include how research findings can be systematically implemented into clinical care. Dr. MacRae works on understanding the mechanisms of heart and vascular disease-especially cardiomyopathies. His lab has developed new models for drug discovery in these diseases including ARVC. He is Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.


During 135 very diffucult Badwater miles  I will think about the incredible courage of my soon to be nurse daughter Kate, the focus of Dr MacRae and his research and all the families that have experienced CardioVascular Intensivce Care and I will do my best to honor all these people and cross the Finish Line. 


Respectfully, 

steve
