THE STORY:

As many of you may or may not already know I’m running the 2013 Boston Marathon 0n April 15th. Training is going great and I’m really looking forward to race day.  I would like to take a second to tell you about the charity I am involved with for this year’s marathon.    

When I decided back in 2004 that I wanted to attend nursing school I made my decision because I wanted my job to have meaning. I wanted to walk out of work each day and feel like I had an effect on someone’s life. As it turns out nursing has had a greater effect on my life then I ever could have dreamed. Caring for people and helping them when they’re feeling their worst, educating them before they leave the hospital with the hope that what you’ve taught them will keep them from coming back has been a blessing to me since starting my career That’s why when it came time to choose a charity to run for, raise funds for and support whole heartedly, it was easy to choose Team Stork.

Team Stork is a charity that raises funds to support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. For those of you who don’t know what that is, think of critically ill infants on life support and respirators to breathe for them because their lungs are so underdeveloped they can’t do it themselves.baby.jpg The funds raised through this charity go towards not only the equipment to help these babies and the Nurses and Doctors who care for them, it also goes towards educating the parents of these very sick babies. Brigham and Women’s Hospital is known worldwide for the care they provide to their patients. To assist them in providing this high level of care to the most fragile of patients they need to rely on the support of donors. They need to improve the ward. They need to constantly update the equipment and most importantly they need to keep the staff trained in the most current techniques to care for their patients. Without these things they can’t continue provide the adequate support needed to keep their patients from leaving alive, let alone returning sicker then the way they left.

I’d like to ask each of you to support this important charity. Please donate today to Team Stork and help save the life of a sick infant any donation helps the cause no matter how large or small. Please use the link I’ve provided to my fund raising page. Remember all donations are totally tax deductable.

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 Stork will raise money for the Stork Fund at BWH, which promotes clinical care, research, and education for healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Together, Team Stork and the Stork Fund will give all babies at BWH the best possible chance at a healthy life.

Team Stork fundraising will MAKE A DIFFERENCE by providing critical resources to the following initiatives:

  • BWH’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, whose skilled and compassionate staff help premature babies beat the odds and go on to live long, healthy lives.
  • Our Birth Equity Initiative, increasing access to timely, high-quality healthcare services, reducing birth disparities in infant mortality and low birthweight, specifically among infants born to black women.
  • The Center for Maternal Fetal Medicine, providing dedicated care to women and newborns with complications identified before and during pregnancy.
  • Our Center for Infertility and Reproductive Surgery, transforming what’s possible in reproductive medicine and answering the hopes of many parents.
  • Additional programs and initiatives that focus on the best possible outcomes for babies and moms.

Whether a first-timer or veteran marathoner, you’re invited to join Team Stork and this group of extraordinary individuals who choose to run the Boston Marathon for more than the 26.2-mile adventure.

Help all babies have a chance at a healthy life. Join Team Stork today at teamstork.org.
