I'm very excited to tell you all that I've joined the Mass General "Emergency Response Marathon Team" and will be running the historic 119th Boston Marathon on April 20th, 2015 to raise money t support this very special team & hospital.
I've been training very hard for this event but can't succeed alone. I need your help to reach (and hopefully surpass) my fundraising goal of $5,000. I am counting on the support of you, my family and friends, to not only finish the race, but to also help Mass General Hospital (MGH). They were at the forefront of emergency care after the tragic events at the 2013 Marathon and we are extremely lucky to have them so close to us right here in MA.
MGH has two teams but given my background, in FireFighting/EMS, it just made sense to joining MGH's Emergency Response Team. The team was set up following the 2013 Marathon to raise funding to support MGH's immediate response to large scale medical emergencies (ie. a bombing at a marathon). Funds will be used to provide social services support for survivors, victims and families involved in disasters and will also support emergency care, disaster relief and preparedness training.
I sincerely hope I can count on your support in this endeavor by contributing to this very special program. If you would prefer to make a physical donation please e-mail me at email@example.com and I can provide you with the information necessary to enable you to donate.
"Thank You" in advance for your support. Together we CAN make a difference and help Mass General remain not only a top hospital locally but also throughout the world.
