I've joined the Miles for Miracles team because I believe so strongly in all the amazing 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.
I run this marathon as a conclusion to a goal set several years ago - I wanted to run a marathon in every state plus Washington, DC and I wanted to complete it before I turned 51. For those who have been following, that was the 51 before 51. I'm not speedy enough to get a qualifying time, but supporting Boston Children's Hospital is the way that yes, I can run this race, but I can also give back for all the support I have had since I started this "crazy" goal years ago.
If you are able and inclined, please consider supporting me, but more importantly support the hospital - the number one pediatric hospital in the country! Please make a gift today to help me reach my goal.
