Exciting news! My husband and I are expecting a new addition to our family in September! Unfortunately, due to do safety concerns, I will not be able to run the marathon this year. All money raised will still go to a good cause. I hope to reach my fundraising goal so that I can run with Team BMC next year.
I have always been interested in helping the underserved. BMC's mission was one of the drawing factors for doing a residency here. BMC provides unique opportunies and services for their patient population, services that depend on the communities generous support. As a devoted employee that has also benefited from the hospital greatly, I welcome the opportunity to raise money for BMC.
Please donate to the cause!
