I am very excited to be accepted to the BIDMC Boston Marathon Team in 2015 and will be fundraising for the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Annual Fund! For the past 3 years, I have been working as the Clinical Director of MRI in the Department of Radiology at BIDMC and have been truly amazed by the quality of care that is being offered here. Every day, patients are being evaluated, diagnosed, and treated with the highest standards and I am proud to be a member of this incredible Institution and Department. By partaking in the Boston Marathon as a member of the BIDMC Team, I feel comforted that all of the money I raise will go directly to the support of the patients at BIDMC.
In addition to being motivated to run for the patients at BIDMC, I am personally very excited to be running the marathon for two specific reasons. Firstly, although running has always been one of my favorite “outlets” I never have found the time and courage to sign up for such an endeavor. I know now, however, that finishing the Boston Marathon in 2015 will make me a healthier and stronger person and hopefully inspire people around me. Secondly, during my recent time at BIDMC, I have had the unfortunate experience to see my dad pass away and some of my friends and colleagues fall ill, unexpectedly. I want to complete the Boston Marathon in 2015 in their honor and support and they will be in my thoughts all the way, 26.2 miles long.
I hope that you will consider supporting my fundraising efforts and help me reach my fundraising goal of $7,500. The quality of the care that is occurring at BIDMC is truly outstanding, and with your support, it can continue benefitting the patients we all care about so much.
Thank you so much!!
