Hello friends and family,
I am very excited to share that Mike and I will be running in the Boston Marathon this April. We have talked of it often and decided that this is the year to take the challenge on. We have 130 days to add another 13 miles to our personal records of a half marathon. What will be more difficult, however, is the other challenge we have taken on, to raise $5000 to benefit the Mass General team Fighting Kids' Cancer ... One Step at a Time.
This team was established in 1998 and has raised nearly $8 million in support of the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. We chose this cause because, unlike some other charitable causes where funds go into a large institutional pot, all of the funds raised will be put to use in support of the Pediatric Hematology and Oncology clinic itself.
Read about the team below and see if it is a cause you would like to support.
Thank you in advance for your help!
