THE STORY:

Hey Everyone!
I am thrilled to be running and raising money for a great team for the second year in a row.  The BWH Stepping Strong fund is such an amazing cause. You can read all about it below. I ran the Boston Marathon with them last year and it was such a fabulous experience I immeditaely wanted to do it again. Not only is the Marathon simply the best but the family really makes you feel like one of their own. Please help me raise money agian this year to support them. This will be my 8th marathon and over 20k raised total over those marathons. Any donations are greatly appreciated! Thanks! See you at the finish line!

 

Brigham and Women's Hospital wrote -

On April 15, 2013, Gillian Reny was one of the many innocent bystanders critically injured at the finish line in the Boston Marathon bombings. She was rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), where doctors and nurses worked heroically to save her life—and both of her legs. In gratitude to BWH, the Reny family established the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation to help trauma patients like Gillian regain their strength and ability to step strong once again. To date, the center has raised more than $9 million to support trauma innovation and recovery while upholding the Boston Strong spirit that defined the aftermath of the marathon tragedy. 

Although trauma accounts for 41 million Emergency Department visits a year and is the leading cause of death for people ages 1-46 in the United States, funding for trauma research and care is scarce. The 2017 BWH Stepping Strong Marathon Team will advance BWH’s commitment to turn tragedy into hope for citizens, military personnel, and families worldwide who have been impacted by the devastation of traumatic injuries and events.

Thank you for supporting this extraordinary group of runners. Learn more about the Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation.

Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) Stepping Strong Marathon Team is proud to participate in the Boston Athletic Association’s Official Charity Program.
