This fall, I am excited to be joining the 2021 Boston Marathon Miles for Miracles team for Boston Children's Hospital, which will be the first marathon I've ever run. I have joined Miles for Miracles because I want to run for those who are not able. I think of children, like my patient partner Kylie, and I am motivated to train. It is an honor to help raise money for such a worthwhile cause. Although I will not be running on the Boston Marathon course, I will still be running 26.2 miles around Concord, NH. I was inspired to join this team after my close friend, Jr Linden, shared his marathon experiences and encouraged me to take on this challenge. I know this will be a lifechanging experience for me. 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.
Support me, and support the hospital! Please make a gift today!
