We are running the New York City Marathon to benefit Boston Children's Hospital!
Aside from the challenge of running 26.2 miles, we are excited to be raising money for a cause that is very near and dear to us. Our son Sammy was cared for by the amazing doctors and nurses at Children's for the first several years of his life, including 4 open heart surgeries by the time he was 4 years old. You would never know it by looking at him! He's 11 years old and every one of those days was made possible by Children's! We are honored to be able to give back to such an imactful organization that cares so deeply for the families it serves.
It also turns out that the NYC Marathon falls on our first wedding anniversary! We can't think of a better way to celebrate how lucky we have been to find each other and bring our families together.
We've joined the Miles for Miracles team because we 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 us, and support the hospital! Please make a gift today- every little bit is greatly appreciated!
