What a day! April 21, was very special indeed as Team Forsyth #miles4smiles ran the 118th Boston Marathon. On behalf of the Forsyth Institute, I would like to extend my personal thanks for your support and contribution to the #miles4smiles Boston Marathon Fundraising Campaign. Training for the race was tough in one of the coldest and snowiest winters we have had in decades, but it was worth it! Knowing we had your support made it a truly memorable day. The race was exciting, exhausting, and exhilarating. Though the weather was picture perfect for spectators it ended up being a bit hot for runners, but that didn't diminish the significance of the day. We took back the finish line with your support.

Your gift supports cutting-edge research programs, and helps translate our work into applications that touch the lives of patients, practitioners, and the public. Our future success depends on many factors: the best scientists, faculty, and staff; the most committed trustees; the latest in facilities and equipment; and the interest and commitment of friends like you. We are proud of Forsyth’s distinguished accomplishments in the field and grateful for your philanthropic support of our work.
I can’t thank you enough. See you for the 119th running of the Boston Marathon. Who wants to run??

Sincerely,

David

Dear Julia,
On behalf of the Forsyth Institute, I would like to extend my personal thanks for your recent contribution to the #Miles4Smiles Boston Marathon Fundraising Campaign. On April 21, 2014, I will be running 26.2 miles on behalf of the Institute, along with Elizabeth Comeau of the Boston Globe, Katie Eastman from the Boston Herald, and Sean Cotton also from the Forsyth. Between now and then, we will be logging countless miles through the bitter New England winter months. Knowing we have the support of wonderful individuals like you will make it that much easier to keep on trucking!

Stuff About Me:

I'm from a family of runners. My dad last ran Boston 33 years ago. I grew up in North Carolina, but Boston has become my adopted home.

 

My young career has been dedicated to helping communities better understand political violence - both through research and through working with those directly affected by conflict.

 

I was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013. The bombings challenged our community in ways I could not have fathomed. For many impacted, it was not the first act of mass violence they had experienced. I'm supporting the One Fund as a tangible way to honor those lost and the many lives forever changed by last April's tragedy. I am also supporting the fund as a step toward building a more constructive conversation about political violence in the United States and elsewhere.

 

If this is a cause to which you would like to contribute, I ask that you consider doing so by supporting my run.

 

Thanks for your time and generosity.
