THE STORY:

BIDMC wrote -

The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Boston Marathon Team will run to raise funds for the Healthy Champions Program at BIDMC-affiliate Bowdoin Street Health Center and the work of the Renal Division Research Team. Additionally, some of our runners will run to raise funds for the Blood Cancer and Bone Marrow Transplant Program and Graduate Medical Education.

Healthy Champions is an interactive program designed to create a way for economically disadvantaged young people to become ambassadors of health within their own families, schools, and the community.  The Healthy Champions Program teaches Bowdoin-Geneva neighborhood children wellness, prevention, and leadership and mentors them on spreading these important lessons to their families, neighbors, and school-age peers.

The Renal Division Research Team has identified a reason for the high rate of kidney disease in people of African descent. Kidney disease is five times more likely to affect African Americans than other groups of people, and the team is actively working to alleviate this epidemic. Over the next three to five years, the team aims to use their findings to better understand, prevent, and treat kidney disease in African Americans. They plan to develop a multifaceted approach to solving this problem that will be highly visible and have a large impact on the lives of individuals and their families.
