Hi! This marks my first marathon ever and I'm very excited to join thousands of runners from across the globe and from the hub that will complete the Boston Marathon’s 26.2 mile course on April 15th for amazing causes such as this BMC fundraiser! BMC’s SPARKs Pediatrics Center is especially dear to my heart as I’ve worked with their children’s hospital in past with the Big Hearts program, by creating Valentine’s cards and care packages with colleagues to send to the hospital’s youngest residents. I will be running in memory of a family friend: Yannick Kelly, who passed at the age of 10 years old after a viral infection attacked his weakened immune system and spinal cord causing hime to be paralyzed, therefore I am even more grateful for my mobility! With your donations, and a strong mentality of ‘mind over matter’ I am dedicated to completing the marathon course and raising much need funds for Boston Medical Center! Thank you so much for your support!
