BENEFITING: WESTCHESTER MEDICAL CENTER FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: WESTCHESTER MEDICAL CENTER FOUNDATION
What motivates me to represent the WMCHealth Network in the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon is my renewed interest in running, which started four years ago when a Biggest Loser competition was initiated on my unit at Westchester Medical Center. Since then, I’ve participated in five half marathons, including the WMCHealth Healing Half Marathon. With continued training, I am ready for the challenge of a full marathon.
The 2017 TCS New York City Marathon has always seemed like the ultimate challenge that I didn’t think I would be able to handle until now. I look forward to representing Westchester Medical Center and being a part of this spectacular event.
Westchester Medical Center is the premier provider of advanced medical care in New York’s Hudson Valley region. The flagship of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network, this 895-bed academic hospital located in Valhalla, New York, provides local residents with acute care services - Level I trauma and burn care, organ transplants and advanced neurovascular procedures and more - found nowhere else in the region. Westchester Medical Center is the primary referral facility for other hospitals in the Hudson Valley and serves as a lifeline for more than 3.5 million people.
I am tremendously humbled to represent Westchester Medical Center in the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. I am going the distance for our patients. Thank you.
