Dear Tom and Iram,

Thank you for the generous support. It really is a privilege to be able to run with the BWH team and to be supported by folks like you.

You probably do not know, we have very recently had a major change in our lives. In fact, the email I sent I did write in Rwanda, but it was sent from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The reason being is that we were informed all of the sudden that the adoption from DRC that we had been working on for over 3 and half years had finally gone through. So, we rapidly left Rwanda, flew to Kinshasa, DRC and are now in our Boston home with our enlarged family – me, Beth, Zachary (age 6) and now Emmanuel (“Manu” – age 5). We are very, very grateful. We hope soon we will be settled enough to send out an announcement.

In the midst of this, still training for the Boston Marathon… Thank you for your ongoing support. It means a great deal to me – thank you deeply for your partnership in this.

I hope you guys are doing well, and I hope we get to connect again in person sometime this year. We'll be on parental leave for the next 3 months I think.

All the best,
Robert

Hello wonderful donors to the BWH Marathon Team,

It has been almost 2 weeks since the Boston Marathon. I wanted to take one last opportunity to say thank you for your very valuable support - and to give you a bit of an update.

The weather on Marathon Monday could not have been more appropriately matched to the training conditions all winter - 44'f, raining, head winds. Epic. An incredible day - the fans and support crew were undeterred by the conditions. The BWH support team did a terrific job of encouraging and optimizing the conditions before the race start. A great sense of solidarity.

For those who are wondering - my finishing time was 3:34. Last year was 3:58. I was shooting (aspirationally) for 3:15, qualifying for my age group... so, I have closed the gap by more than half. Perhaps next year we'll get it. (Yes,this marathon and this team is a habit-forming experience).

A couple days after the marathon, I flew to London for the launch of the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery. The report (entitled "Global Surgery 2030: evidence and solutions for achieving health, welfare and economic development") and all the efforts around it, represent a major step forward in the work to create access to safe, affordable and timely surgical and anesthesia care for all people. It is exciting and a privilege to be at an institution that supports such global work. If you are interested in perusing the Commission outputs, the following website has all the links.

Thank you again for supporting me and the Brigham and Women's Hospital.

Enjoy the Spring!

A quick warm enthusiastic thank you!! ...to all 85 of my wonderful supporters. We are on the bus to Hopkinton, to get this race going. It is cold and raining in Boston – how incredibly appropriate. Thank you to all of you for making this day a reality for me, and for your support to Brigham and Women's Hospital and all the life.giving.breakthroughs that it provides.

All the best,
Robert

Tom and Iram,

Thanks guys! This is so generous! Training this winter has been a bit challenging (I've never run in 5' F before…). But it has been fun to think about representing a wide range of supporters in the effort.

Tom, it was great getting to spend some time together in LV a few weeks ago. My only regret is that perhaps I should have bought that electric toothbrush. =)

I look forward to connecting with you in London (hopefully at that point I will be an injury free Boston-Marathon-completer…). Wishing you and your family all the best.


Love to you guys,
Robert
