I am honored and excited to announce that I will be running the 2020 New York City Marathon with Boston Children's Hospital. My goal for this race is not only to complete my FIRST EVER marathon, but to do so while supporting the transformative work that BCH does. It means a lot to me to be a part of this team as I believe so strongly in all the amazing things Boston Children's Hospital does for kids including:
- 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.
Running has been such a huge part of my life and this represents the next great challenge during my running journey. As exciting as it is, I can't help but think about the many children within BCH's care that may not have the chance to experience something like this, or even run at all for that matter. For that reason I plan to not only run for myself, but to run for them and their families. So please, if you can, support me, and support the hospital!
