THE STORY:

How often do you get to run around the concrete jungle that dreams are made of while doing something for an amazing cause? I am running the New York City Marathon through all 5 of the boroughs all in order to raise money for the place I work,  the Children's Hospital at Montefiore. Everyday I get to wake up in the city that I love, and I am extremely excited to run through all parts of this crazy city with my incredible roommate and friend Amanda. We have run two half marathons before and we decided to go all in by running our first full marathon. 


 I started my career volunteering at my local children's hospital and it inspired my career in healthcare. Now working at Montefiore I see the dedicaiton and drive every person who walks the halls has for the patients they save. The Bronx is home to one of the most diverse populations on the planet and CHAM is dedicated to providing world class care to every child no matter their background or ability to pay. Help support this incredible place that is committed to providing care to all children in the Bronx, both within and outside of its walls.

Champions for CHAM is tuning up for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon! On November 5, the team will represent The Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) in the legendary 26.2-mile race. Team members receive guaranteed entry to the marathon by pledging to raise funds for CHAM. All donations support enhancement services that are critical to optimizing health outcomes for pediatric patients and their families, including child life programming, integrative medicine, palliative care services and support groups for parents.

Since opening in 2001, The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore has served the most vulnerable children from the Bronx and beyond, providing the best routine care while also treating children with complex and life-threatening medical conditions. CHAM strives to help children have the best opportunity to lead active and healthy lives and realize their full potential. CHAM is the only pediatric hospital in the Bronx and the largest provider of healthcare for children from the nation’s poorest urban community. CHAM is unique in serving every child regardless of the family's ability to pay. In partnership with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, groundbreaking discoveries by CHAM investigators have led to new therapies, models of care and better outcomes for children.  Each year, CHAM serves 250,000 unique patients over the course of 9,000 inpatient admissions, 55,000 emergency department visits and 2,000,000 ambulatory care visits.

Thank you for supporting CHAM and our team of dedicated runners! Whether you are racing or cheering, we look forward to seeing you on November 5th!
