THE STORY:

Friends, Americans and fellow Britons! Thank you so much for visiting my Fundraising Page, for the Boston Marathon 2016, as a member of the Mass Eye and Ear Team. Do read on, but don't forget to dust off your wallet before leaving... :) 

In 2012 I came to Boston to take up a positon at the British Internatonal School of Boston; a number of months later, I was at the finish line of the 2013 Marathon waiting for a dear friend to finish the race.  In the aftermath of what I witnessed that day, I swore to myself that I would, one day, run the Boston marathon, fundraising for a charity that was instrumental in helping those affected on that day. 

I feel incredibly privileged to be running for the  Massachusetts Eye and Ear, an institution that is driven by a mission to find cures for blindness, deafness and diseases of the head and neck, treating over 300,000 people yearly, from over 80 countries. 

With a sister who is training to be a doctor, it was was imperative to me to support the future medical leaders in ophthalmology and otolaryngology, in the city of Boston, where I have spent the last four, joyous years. 

This will be a huge personal achievment, yet nothing compared to the remarkable achievements that occur in Mass Eye and Ear, every day.

I believe in the importance of the institution that I am running for, and all I ask is for the generosity of your sponsorship. Please give generously, safe in the knowledge that your kindness, will not only ease my blisters, the pungent stench of my sneakers and the pain of my limbs pounding the snow-laden pavements of Boston, but translate into vital support for Mass Eye and Ear. 

Thank you, once again, for your support.
