Dear Friends and Family,
On November 4th Mike and I,will have the great privilege to run the New York Marathon in honor of our daughter Margaret. All fundraising efforts will go towards the present and future children and families that will walk through the doors at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Fourteen years ago, our daughter Margaret was born prematurely and critically ill at just 29 weeks old. She was a patient at Boston Children’s Hospital for many years. Both myself, Mike and our family are eternally grateful for the care she got in her most fragile days. There are no words to thank the incredible surgeons, nurses, and staff at Boston Children’s Hospital.
After many years and multiple lifesaving surgeries and treatment, Margaret is a thriving teenager. She loves school, hockey, lacrosse and most of all, her friends and family. As her parents, it has been a true joy watching her grow and succeed.
In the years following Margaret’s journey, We've always thought of ways to give back to this truly amazing hospital. In November, Mike and I will run for Margaret. We will also run for the children and families who will have the bittersweet opportunity to experience the excellence of Boston Children’s Hospital. We will run with a heart filled with gratitude.
We've set a fundraising goal of $3,000. It is my great hope that through your help and support, We will reach this goal and thensome.
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.
Elizabeth and Mike
