EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
For the second year in a row, I've joined the MGH Marathon Team to support their fundraiser "Fighting Kid's Cancer....One Step at a Time". The MGH has entered a team in the Boston marathon for the past 16 years and over that time has raised almost eight million dollars for the childhood cancer program at the Mass General Hospital for Children.
It didn't take much convincing to get me to lace up my running shoes for another marathon. My inspiration comes from my niece, Lily, who was diagnosed with Leukemia in September 2011. I'm also running in support of all the people in our lives whom cancer has affected, including my cousin Jennifer, Aunt Bonnie, Uncle Pat and especially my cousin Steve, who sadly passed away this past January. Please help me support the fight against cancer by donating to my site.
