I am proud to be running the 2021 Boston Marathon on behalf of Boston Children’s Hospital/Miles for Miracles and the Credit Unions Kids at Heart Team.
Credit Unions Kids at Heart is a collaborative charitable organization of the credit union community throughout New England. Together, we raise money for research aimed at the prevention, treatment, and, one day, cure of pediatric neurological disorders. Our fields of interest are pediatric epilepsy and seizure disorders, Moyamoya disease, Cerebral Palsy, and pediatric brain cancer.
Our Team’s fundraising goes directly to medical research and clinical trials, performed at Boston Children’s Hospital and in partnership with their research affiliates. Boston Children’s Hospital has led the way in superior innovations in treatment and care since their founding 150 years ago. Our medical investigator partners believe, as we do, in the remarkable resilience of children, and in a future where every child can enjoy good health. We are proud to partner with their world-class research enterprise to help make their important discoveries and innovations available to children worldwide.
This is my third year running the Marathon, and I am proud to partner with my Patient Partner Ryan and Patient Partner Tim!
I am running this year because of the impact that Ryan and his family had on me last year. Ryan’s sense of humor has shined through each time we’ve had a chance to be together. And I am blessed to have the opportunity to run for Tim this year, as well. Tim met us halfway through our virtual marathon run last year and I know that seeing both Ryan and Tim on the road to Boston will keep me going!
Thank you for supporting my run, supporting my Team, and for joining our mission to help children lead happy and healthy lives.
