I've run numerous 5k's and Half Marathons over the past 10+ years, but have never committed to a full. I am honored to be able to run my first marathon be for such a great cause.
Established in 1996, by Jane Melchionda, the CU Kids at Heart Team is dedicated to helping children, receiving care at BCH, lead healthy and happy lives. For the past several years, the CU Kids at Heart Team has worked closely with the scientists and doctors at BCH to fund special research activities aimed at the prevention, treatment, and/or cure of pediatric neurological diseases, including Sturge-Weber Syndrome, Moyamoya disease, Cerebral Palsy, pediatric brain cancer and epilepsy research. Each runner is paired with a patient partner child who is receiving care at BCH. Many of the patient partners have extraordinary medical challenges, but also possess great spirit, strength, courage and determination. These incredible children, who overcome their own challenges every day, inspire the runners to achieve personal goals that they never thought possible.
All donations made to Credit Unions Kids at Heart go directly to the doctor's relentless efforts to find cures for Moyamoya Syndrome, Cerebral palsy, Pediatric Brain Cancer, Sturge webber, and Epilepsy.
Please consider supporting me, Abby, Credit Unions Kids @ Heart and Boston Children's Hospital.
