Tod Brubaker

THE STORY:

When I told my kids I was considering running in my very first marathon this spring, my 9-year-old daughter Lucy looked at me with great skepticism and said, “Daddy, you can’t run a Marathon!”

I’ll admit, up to that moment I was seriously questioning whether I had what it takes to complete such a long, challenging run. But now I knew I had to do it. I didn’t want to appear lame in the eyes of my daughter. I wanted to show her that amazing things are possible in this world when you put your mind to it.

I’m also running to support the brilliant researchers at BIDMC, who have figured out why African Americans are 5 times more likely to have kidney disease than other people. It’s an important discovery that could lead to better treatments…and correct a horrible injustice of nature.

I’m a creative director in advertising who has been running regularly for nearly 25 years. My wife, Rhea, is a development officer at BIDMC. But even with her mighty fundraising skills, I need your generous support!

I have promised to raise $5,000 for Team BIDMC and their exciting kidney disease research. If you’d like to support this worthwhile cause, while also helping me retain my status as DADDY MAN in the eyes of my two daughters, please make a donation.

I’ll see you at the finish line!
