EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
Thank you everyone for visiting my fundraising page for Team Eye & Ear. As many of you are aware, I'm running the Boston Marathon this year and supporting Team Eye & Ear in the process. The Boston Marathon has been a goal of mine for some time and one that I've often approached with some apprehension due to my asthma and random physical injuries that I so commonly endure. Running the marathon would be a testament that when given the time and effort, we can accomplish almost anything. I'm thankful everyday to have the ability to walk, run, see, hear, etc. Please help support this long time goal of mine as well as Massachusetts Eye and Ear as they use these funds to further their research and support for those in need.
Since 2006, Mass. Eye and Ear's marathon team, Team Eye and Ear, has raised over $1.4 million for research and patient care at Mass. Eye and Ear. in 2012, we aim to raise more than $350,000. Team Eye and Ear members bring new hope and a healthier future to people everywhere who suffer from debilitating conditions affecting sight, hearing, voice, balance, taste and smell and cancers of the eye, head and neck.
Thank you everyone for your support! Status updates and more pics to come...

At Mass. Eye and Ear, our focus is your quality of life. We treat everything that has to do with the eyes, ears, nose, throat, head and neck - so that you and those you care about can get more out of the world around us.
Our physicians are more than just specialists; each is also a researcher and a teacher. These doctors don't just apply the latest advances in medicine; they invent them. Together with Mass. Eye and Ear scientists, they work tirelessly to understand the root causes of diseases that both take people's lives and rob too many others of their quality of life.
Every dollar raised makes it possible for Mass. Eye and Ear to excel in clinical care, research and medical education. That, in turn, allows us to provide the finest specialty care to every person who comes through our door and to share our knowledge in order to help patients around the world.
Thank you for your support.
