I've joined the Miles for Miracles team 10 years ago as a bucket list item to complete the Boston Marathon! Never finished in 2013 due to a horrific day at the finish line and said I would be back with the same M4M team and soon I was on #TeamJace! Now fast forward to present day; the journey running all over the world over these last 10 years raising money for Boston Childrens Hospital and Jace Perkins, my patient partner, is complete! Just finished my Abbott World Marathon Majors in Tokyo this past March for #TeamJace! Much more to come on Jace Perkins in the coming weeks/months! So much to share about his own journey which is truly inspirational and how Boston Childrens Hospital and the nurses and doctors saved his life! There is still some work to do! Cannot say enough great things about the friends I met each year on the M4M team training in either bitter cold or brutal heat are now my extended family because of the shared bond of the team, our patient partners and the what Boston Children's Hospital does for kids:
- The hospital's patient care programs are unusually sensitive to what sick and injured children and their families really need.
- Researchers regularly make amazing discoveries that change children's lives.
- Boston Children's welcomes kids whose families can't afford health care--more than any other hospital in Massachusetts.
- Community programs makes a point of reaching out to help low-income and at-risk kids.
And the hospital doesn't just stop there. Boston Children's really understands the importance of training the next generation of top pediatricians and nurses, so they can continue to provide the best, most innovative care possible to kids.
