On April 17, 2017 nearly 36,000 runners will take to the streets of Boston and the surrounding communities to run the 121st Boston Marathon. I am lucky enough to be counted as one of those runners, and I am asking for your support today to help me reach my fundraising goal.
I will be running the 121st Boston Marathon for Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children. Growing up in Massachusetts I always viewed the Marathon as one of most special days in the city. Watching thousands of people running for causes close to their heart gave me hope to one day run the 26.2 miles for a charity close to mine. Being from Boston and attending the Marathon every year, for me the Boston Marathon bombings hit close to home. The Marathon was always about people running and raising money for a good cause. The Boston Marathon bombings took away from these good causes and rather turned the 2013 Marathon into a story about tragedy. This further fueled my desire to want to run the Boston Marathon in order to bring the Marathon back to its real meaning, people coming together for a good cause. Tufts Medical Center was a vital part of the response efforts following the 2013 Boston Marathon tragedy.
This year Team Tufts will hope to raise money to support Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children’s mission to heal, comfort, teach, learn, and to seek the knowledge to promote health and prevent disease. Your support of my Marathon efforts will help to continue Tufts Medical Center’s rich tradition of health care innovation, leadership and maintaining the highest standard of care to all in our community.
My personal fundraising goal is $5,000. On February 11th, 2017 I will be hosting a charity event at The Landsdowne Pub in Boston, MA. The event will start at 3pm and will include a raffle with various restaurants in and around the Boston area. Donations can be made directly to my fundraising page http://www.teamtuftsmc.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1167468&lis=1&kntae1167468=4C0875CC573F4CC2A2E03F0A8961D165&supId=436181854&emaillogid=9046064665
