BENEFITING: The MGH Institute of Health Professions, Inc.
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Thanks for visiting my Crowdrise page! I am running the Boston Marathon for The Christopher Norman Educational Fund as part of Team IHP. As a 2011 alum of the MGH IHP's Communication Science & Disorders program, I am very excited to give back to the Institute that prepared me so well for my career in Speech-Language Pathology. All of the money raised with benefit future SLPs through the Christopher Norman Educational Fund. Since 2011, the Christopher Norman Educational Fund has helped a number of CSD students to recruit subjects for research/thesis projects who may not have otherwise participated, to purchase software for a thesis project, enroll in a leadership conference, conduct an international stuttering research project, and present research at conferences, along with many other educationally valuable experiences. It is my goal to keep this fund active to honor Christopher's memory and support future CSD students in their educational endeavors so that a lack of money or a need to take out additional student loans doesn't hinder learning and/or contributions to future research.
Thank you for considering making a donation to this important cause and for helping me along on the road to Boston!
