THE STORY:

My name is Jillian Corrao, and I am running the 2014 Boston Marathon in support of the Ace Bailey Children's Foundation, and my dear friend, BethAnn Bligh.  BethAnn was hospitalized at 25 weeks pregnant with severe pre-eclampsia and delivered her daughter Cailin at 33 weeks.  Cailin, born at just 2 lbs 13 oz is now a healthy 17 month old little girl, and her mother BethAnn is healthy as well, all made possible with the help of the amazing care of the NICU at the Floating Hospital.  

We sought out in 2013 to run this race for the Ace Bailey Children's Foundation, however we were not able to finish due to the senseless and horrible tragedy that occurred that day.  While we know that many others suffered so much that day, we were lucky to all make out it safely, with our families, and we all believe it was because Ace was watching over us. This year we are going to finish what we started, raise more money for this amazing organization, and show those who try to knock us down that they never will.  Because WE ARE BOSTON STRONG!!

Please help me raise funds in support of this amazing organization and in honor of my friend BethAnn!

The Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation was established in memory of Garnet “Ace” Bailey who was killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Ace’s family has created the Foundation to honor his memory and to perpetuate his deep caring for the happiness of children through making the hospital experience less stressful for children and their families.

The work of the Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation focuses on the well-being of hospitalized children through the building and renovation of hospital environments that improve the family-centered and softer side of hospital care.  We strive to reduce the stress of pediatric hospitalization by creating environments that are less clinical in appearance and more comforting and soothing for pediatric patients. The Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston is the recipient of our funding.
