Ben's 2017 NYC Marathon Page
I'm not exactly sure what I was thinking, but I signed up for the 2017 New York City Marathon on November 5th! This will be my first marathon and I am very excited to run it in New York, and for Boston Children's Hospital! Boston Children's was nice enough to give me a number and I am honored to run for Miles for Miracles, a program that has raised millions of dollars so that Boston Children's can provide the very best care for children in need. Those of us in the Boston area and in New England are very fortunate to have this type of care so close to home. We've had friends and families go to Boston Children's when faced with an injury or sickness and it is always comforting to know that they're in good hands:
- 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'll try to update this page regularly with training progress and patient stories.
I hope you'll consider supporting me and Boston Children's this year, it's a tremendous organization and again I feel very fortunate to be running for such a great cause in my first marathon.
