THE STORY:

For the next few months, I'll be training to run in the 2012 Boston Marathon. Let it be known that I've never participated in an organized race in my life. No 5K's. Nothing. Back in July, I began running regularly - between 3 - 5 miles, 3 times per week- as a way to blow off steam and get some regular exercise. Yet, when I heard about the opportunity to raise funds for MGH's Institute of Health Professions, I was compelled to throw my hat in the ring. Through an application process, I was selected to receive one of 3 bib numbers.

You may be wondering- "What gives? Why now?" Well, you know that inner pull, that force within that compels you to make decisions you might not otherwise make; the one that urges you to let go and trust- it kicked into full gear when I learned about this opportunity. See, through the support of a generous man named Sumner Brown, I have been awarded a merit scholarship that eased the financial burden of returning to school to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a nurse. This fundraising opportunity represents, for me, a way to pay it forward.

As I train for and run the marathon, I do so in honor of Mr. Brown's late wife, Emilene, as well as in memory of my late husband, Patrick. Running in memory of these two amazing individuals, and the legacies they leave behind is a privilege.

Now, Let the games begin!
