BENEFITING: MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL
ORGANIZER: MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
My name is Tom Hays, and I'm running to support the Adolescent Health Center. As a medical student and future pediatrician, I know firsthand how important it is to take care of the health of young people. The Center provides the first-rate care that young people need to start their lives on a successful path, and to reach their full potential. The access to care that many of us take for granted–vaccines, reproductive services, preventive medicine, and even just a safe and confidential place to talk–make a world of difference.
I had the honor to be a part of the Center's Run for Teens NYC marathon team in 2011. I remember how arduous, and fullfilling training and the run was. But, I'm signed up again because I am committed to supporting this wonderful institution.
Please consider making a donation to support me and this cause!
