Emily & Aaron Remenschneider
Greetings from Massachusetts! As many of you may already know, we are currently training to run this year’s Boston Marathon on April 21st, 2014. While we have both joked about running 26.2 miles some day, we never thought we would have the honor to run the world’s oldest annual marathon. The motivation to run this year was several fold: to continue to improve our health, to run in support of a city and an event that we love and to help give back to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary – an institution that has become a second home to both of us. We hope to make this event a memorable one – and to say that we conquered Heartbreak Hill!
Last year’s Marathon Monday is one which will be remembered for different reasons. First responders from around the city came together to aid those runners and spectators injured from the dual blasts. Staff at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary have taken care of many of these individuals and are currently conducting a research study to learn more about blast related ear injury. Recent articles from The Hearing Journal and Harvard Medical School provide more detail.
Funds raised from our marathon campaign will go directly to hearing related research at Massachusetts Eye and Ear – so give now and give often!!
Most of all – thank you to all for your generous support, we are excited be a part of Team Eye and Ear!
Aaron and Emily Remenschneider
