In the next four (yes, only four) months, I will be training and raising money to run in the infamous Boston Marathon! It is funny to think I was once supporting the marathon runners with a beer in hand and a t-shirt saying "you run, ill drink". Guess I will be running the 26.2 miles this time around...and I could not be any more excited to participate in such an epic event.
i will be running with Team BMC and I hope to gain your support in raising $5000. I am currently a graduate student at BU Med, studying to receive a masters in clinical research. I have a wonderful internship in the Oncology Clinical Research Center at BMC, and running for Team BMC is my way of giving back to a great institution.
All the funds I raise during this campaign will go directly to the Boston Medical Center. Please help me in this great strive for personal achievement and to support Boston Medical Center, an extraordinary community of health care providers devoted to ensuring the best health care for each and every one.
Thank you in advance for all your help and support!
A little more info on BMC.
