BENEFITING: MONTEFIORE MEDICAL CENTER
ORGANIZER: MONTEFIORE MEDICAL CENTER
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
On November 6th, I'll be running the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon as part of the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) team. I'm running to say "thank you" to the incredible team of doctors, nurses, and staff who have positively impacted my life, and who hold a special place in my heart for the incredible work they do each and every day. Your support will make a difference in the lives of patients, who are treated at Montefiore Hospital, many of whom wouldn't be able to receive such groundbreaking and life-changing surgeries otherwise.
All donations support enhancement services that are critical to optimizing health outcomes for pediatric patients and their families, including child life programming, integrative medicine, reconstructive surgeries, palliative care services and support groups for parents.
- Since opening in 2001, The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore has served the most vulnerable children from the Bronx and beyond, providing the best routine care while also treating children with complex and life-threatening medical conditions.
- CHAM is the only pediatric hospital in the Bronx and the largest provider of healthcare for children from the nation’s poorest urban community.
- CHAM is unique in serving every child regardless of the family's ability to pay.
CHAM strives to help children have the best opportunity to lead active and healthy lives and realize their full potential. While I’ve been fortunate enough to have grown up leading an active lifestyle, I know not all children grow up with that luxury. Your donation will not only help the children at Montefiore receive the care they need, but more importantly will allow these children to move forward and lead fulfilling, healthy active lives outside the walls of a hospital.
Making a donation is easy, click on the “Donate” button which will lead you to my secure fundraising site. Also, check to see if your company will match your gift! All donations are tax-deductible.
While I’ve always been a runner, 26.2 will be a first for me, but something that I am excited to do!
Thanks for your support- hope to see you on the sidelines!
