I am incredibly excited to be joinging the Boston Children's Hospital Miles for Miracles team this spring to run Boston's Run to Remember Half Marathon on May 28, 2017. Since joining my team in the Epilepsy Genetics Program here almost two years ago, I have met countless individuals: physicians, nurses, genetic counselors, patients, parents, family members, and many others, who have shown me what a special place BCH is. To show my gratitude to all of the individuals who have made my time here so life changing, I aim to fundraise and run for their cause!
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.
Support my run, and support the hospital! Please make a gift today.
