THE STORY:

Here's my story: 

Hi everyone!  I am honored to be running the Boston Marathon this year for the Mass General Marathon Team.  The main picture you see featured on this page was taken the day I can say I caught the running bug- my first half marathon!  Three half marathons later, I am ready to take on this challenge and couldn't imagine running the race for a better organization.

As a pediatric nurse practitioner in primary care, I have the privilege of caring for mostly well children and their families, and in the cases of illness, there aren't too many instances when a course of antibiotics or steroids won't do the trick.  It is a much different environment than the one I experienced when I completed one of my clinical rotations in the MGH Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology.  During that year, I had the opporunity to meet and help care for some of the braviest children and families that I have ever met.  During my clinical experience there, I was also able to meet many of the marathon runners who came to the clinic to meet their patient partners.  It was in those moments that I decided if I ever ran Boston, I would run it for the MGH clinic.  So I've decided to run 26 miles in my 26th year to raise necessary funds to support the fantastic care the clinic provides for their patients.  With your help, I hope to surpass my $5000 fundraising goal and make a contribution to finding a cure of pediatric cancer....one step at a time.  Thank you in advance for your support! 

Love,

Jen
