I am very fortunate to have been selected to run the Boston Marathon on April 16th, 2018!
As part of the race, I am trying to raise funds for the Gillian Renly Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation, a leading edge trauma center at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA. Orginally created as a charity fund in honor of Gillian Renly, a 13-year old girl who was injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, the organization recently expanded from a virtual program into a physical hub dedicated to collaborative efforts in trauma research and recovery.
In addition to supporting survivors of everyday trauma, the Stepping Strong Center has been a leader in the field of trauma research for our combat veterans. By providing researchers with critical resources and funding, the doctors at the Stepping Strong Trauma Center have made several game-changing innovations to soldiers severely injured in the line of combat.
If you are able, I would be very appreciative of any donation you can give to my fundraising efforts. I would be happy to answer any questions you have and thanks for your support either way!
