BENEFITING: NEW ENGLAND BAPTIST HOSPITAL
ORGANIZER: NEW ENGLAND BAPTIST HOSPITAL
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
It is a true privilege to be selected as part of the Boston Marathon Team, "Your Motion Matters” for my employer, New England Baptist Hospital. I have been working at New England Baptist Hospital for four years and am fortunate enough to work closely with patients on a daily basis. I always love hearing stories from the patients who have been athletes throughout their lives. They range from marathon runners, tennis players, bicyclists, and other competitors. While at times they may be discouraged by their current state in the hospital, I know first hand that the surgeons at NEBH do amazing work and the patients receive progressive and excellent post-operative care that will give them the opportunity to return to their beloved sports.
I have connected well with my patients given that I am also an athlete and enjoy running. Running is my stress reliever, my hobby, and an activity that I enjoy dragging my friends and family along with (even though they may not always appreciate the holiday 5K's in the rain or snow!).
I run for all those who cannot, whether it is because of a current injury or an old injury that has impaired their ability to partake in running.
Please consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goal of $7,500. With a gift to support team NEBH, Our Motion Matters, you are choosing to make a difference in the lives of patients with musculoskeletal disease or injury. Our team will advance research to develop new and better treatments, programs that enhance our patients’ results, and the education of the next generation of orthopedic physicians and nurses.
Thank you for your support!
