To my friends, family, colleagues, teammates, and all those who are considering supporting this world-class organization,
I am honored to be a part of the Miles for Miracles team running the 2020 Boston Marathon. My reason for running is my 6-year-old son, James, pictured here completing his first ever 5k trail race with me. It is a big deal for a 6-year-old to run a 5k. It is an especially big deal for someone like James, who experienced a stroke at birth. For the past five years, James has worked with more than a dozen different specialists on three different campuses of BCH and every single person he has encountered has been incredibly kind and caring. Although he continues to face health and learning challenges, we know that the professionals supporting us are committed to seeing him succeed and grow. Because of his team at Boston Children's Hospital, James is thriving and able to pursue the activities he loves...like running.
I've joined the Miles for Miracles team because I believe so strongly in all the exceptional things 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.
Please support me, support children like James, and support the hospital! Please make a gift today.
