BENEFITING: BIDMC

ORGANIZER: BIDMC

EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015

THE STORY:

Last year, I had the opportunity to run the 2014 Boston Marathon in memory of my dad and raising money for an amazing facility, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. I trained through a snowy, cold winter, fell flat on my face running once (a UPS man yelled out of his car to see if I was OK... embarassing), pulled my hamstring once, and developed a bacterial sinus infection just in time to run the race. Even so, I had the best day and wanted to come back for a repeat performance! 

I am once again running in memory of my dad, Michael Harries, who passed away from leukemia in 1992 when I was 8 years old. The doctors and nurses that treated him during his illness were great and were unbelievably kind to my brother and I, and the money I'm raising will go toward both continuing education for them and the kind of medical research that will eventually cure leukemia and other cancers. I am 100% sure my father is watching over me, beer in hand, thinking "Why the hell would you run a marathon?", but proud just the same.

I'm raising money for the Annual Fund at BIDMC, which raises unrestricted dollars that can be used immediately for a wide range of needs. They provide a reliable, steady source of funding for the programs that need it most:

  • Promising research projects, such as cancer genetics investigations
  • Annual operating costs, such as funding for social worker positions
  • Career development opportunities for staff, such as continuing education scholarships for nurses
  • Expansion of clinical spaces, like minimally invasive surgery suites
  • Academic and teaching programs, such as fellowships for the next generation of physicians in growing service lines

Any donation earns you the right to add a song to my playlist (anything you want, and yes, some abused the priviledge). 

If you'd like to follow along while I attempt to train for my second marathon through another winter in a new town (notably lacking sidewalks and streetlights, hurray for adventures!), you can do so at http://livelikeitssharkweek.com

I really, truly could not do this without the support of my friends, family, and invisible internet friends - you all are amazing, and I love you!
