THE STORY:

Hi Everyone,


I'm running the 2013 Boston Marathon for the MGH Institute of Health Professions.  The money I raise will go towards financial aid for students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program.  I am an alum of the program and on the faculty now.  I have known the CSD department for 17 years!  Wow, does time fly.
The CSD program is an outstanding program in the field.  Our students are dedicated, enthusiastic, and we are so lucky to work with them as they become therapists and, now researchers as well.   There are so many areas of expertise in our program.  For example, students can become therapists who work with autism, aphasia, voice disorders, dysphagia, dyslexia, traumatic brain injury to name but a few.  
My goal is to raise at least $5000 for the Annual Fund for Communication Sciences and Disorders which supports many areas of our program including providing financial aid support to students each year. I know that tuition costs are prohibitive for some, so I’m running and raising money to help the best and brightest students gain access to an MGH Institute education regardless of their ability to pay.

Can you help me?

I will be blogging and updating you with training and the like.  It's an uphill battle to say the least, but one I feel is totally worth the efforts.
