Thanks for visiting my page and supporting my first fundraising and Boston Marathon. As a runner for years, I am thrilled for this opportunity of running the greatest race, Boston Marathon, in 2019 in supporting a greater cause of Massachusetts General Hospital. The Emergency Response team is running to fundraise in supporting for emergency care, disaster relief, and disaster preparedness at Mass General Hospital. When incidents happen, they are always the first group responding to them. Like the bombings in 2013, the city was devastated. They had to immediately respond to the tragedy and start saving lives. Every second matters in saving lives from incidents. It is like every step matters in running a marathon. The distance is long, and there is no shortcut. You just have to face it and run it step by step until passing the finish line.
In my real life, I am a scientist developing novel therapeutics for rare diseases to help patients in the world. I am always passionate about how to make impact to improve human life. I am grateful for the opportunity of representing MGH Team in Boston Marathon in 2019. To me, it just presents a great combination of my runner and scientist nature. I am honor to support their mission and run for the city my family and I currently live in.
Please join me in supporting the MGH Emergency Response Team for a greater cause. Any donations would be greatly appreciated! And please come and cheer for me on the Patriots Day in 2019. Boston Strong!

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 sixth year, thanks to John Hancock, the Mass General Emergency Response Marathon Team will be able to continue raising funds to help provide critical support for emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness teaching and training at Mass General; efforts that benefit victims worldwide.
These funds are crucial to ensure that Mass General is ready for the next disaster, man-made or natural, and to 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. Donors, like you, are critical to our success. Time spent training is not covered by insurance and often takes place outside work hours. Any donation towards the Mass General Emergency Response team allows Mass General to be ready when seconds count.
