ORGANIZER: Brigham and Women's Hospital
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Founded as Team Brigham in 1998, our runners have collectively raised $5.5 million for vital patient and community health programs at BWH and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital.
In 2013, Team Deloitte will run with Brigham and Women's Hospital again to raise money for breast cancer research while other Brigham runners will run for Team Stork to raise money for the Stork Fund at BWH, which promotes clinical care, research, and education for healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.
This will be my 9th time running with the Brigham team and I have personally raised more than $45,000 for the Ellen Gabriel Breast Cancer Fund at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Ellen was a partner in the Boston office of Deloitte and the Firms' first leader of the Women's Initiative Program. Ellen lost her battle with breast cancer. Since her passing, our team has raised more than $950,000 to support a Fund set up in her name. All of these funds are used in the local community to provide at-risk women and women in need free screenings. In addition, the funds are used to educate these women about breast cancer and to offer counseling. It goes without saying that this is a great cause. Please consider donating to my fundraising efforts to help me meet my fundraising goal towards a wonderful cause.
