THE STORY:

I am very excited that on April 20, 2015, I will run my first marathon and will fundraise for the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Annual Fund.   Beth Israel is where I was born, where my mother, a nurse, worked prior to having children, and where my mother and step-mother received care during their battle with cancer.  By being part of this team, I know all the money that I raise will go to support programs such as research projects for cancer, career development for staff, and expansion of clinical spaces for patient care.  As a research and learning hospital affiliated with Harvard University, I am very proud to support BIDMC and all that it does.

I am running the Boston Marathon not only to support BIDMC, but for personal reasons as well.  I started running seriously 5 years ago completing my 1st half marathon.  Since then I have completed over 10 more 1/2 marathons, and up until now never considered a marathon.  Boston is the only one I would attempt because even though I moved to Florida from Boston 25 years ago, Boston is still home and always will be.  You can take the girl out of Boston, but you can't take Boston out of the girl!

I know finishing the Boston Marathon will make me stronger, healthier, and more confident that I can accomplish anything I want to do.  I am also running this marathon for 5 very special people who are not here to see me, but I hope will be watching proudly from above.  For my mother, Frances Sohn, who died from cancer when I was 9, for my dad, Jack Sohn, who lost his life to ALS, for Velma Sohn, my step-mother who died from cancer, for Susan Sohn, my sister-in-law who died from cancer, and Ken Quinter, my father-in-law who also lost his life to cancer.  I want to run the Boston Marathon in their honor in the city they were all from whose lives were taken far too early.  As I run those 26.2 miles, I will think of them and all those that BIDMC can still help in their battle against any sickness or disease.

I hope that you will help me reach my fundraising goal of $7500.  With your help, BIDMC can continue the quality of care for its patients, its research projects, and further the education and career development for its staff.

Thank you so much for your support.

Love,

Sandy
