I am proudly running the NYC Marathon in support of Boston Children's Hospital because of the first hand life changing impact these hero's had on my family. After a long 16 year battle with numerous medical disabilities my younger sister, Ailish Campanile, sadly passed away in 2018. Although she was taken from us far too early, Boston Children's Hospital was vital in extending her life and giving my family more time to experience life with Ailish. Over the years Ailish had many operations conducted through the Boston Children's Hospital and I am very thankful for all the heroes there that worked towards improving my sisters health and life expectancy. Although I will never be able to fully repay these men and women for what they've done for me, I am excited to run in their honor to help raise money to support their life changing work. Running is easy compared to the daily battles that most of these young kids face and places like Boston Children's Hospital exist to give them a fighting chance. Together we can raise money that will save the lives of many amazing children.
Every dollar I raise funds breakthrough research, family support, and vital services not covered by insurance through the hospital’s Every Child Fund. Your gift will:
give children battling the most complex diseases treatments they can’t find anywhere else;
help children in your town and those across the world get a second chance;
fuel 3,000+ researchers working to find cures;
help patient-families in crisis with urgent needs, including housing, food and clothing;
bring crucial care to families through not 1, but 4 outpatient psychiatry clinics;
and so much more.
Nothing great is accomplished alone, I look forward to seeing what we can all achieve together!
