Hi! My name is Abi Chapman, and I've joined the Miles for Miracles team because I believe 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.
For me, this run is a little more personal. I am currently a junior in high school, and my freshman year, I tore the labrum in my hip while playing varsity soccer. This injury required surgery, which I received at Boston Children's Hospital. At the time of my injury, it was unclear if high-impact activity would be a reality for me anymore. I had to quit soccer, which is everything that I had identified with up until that point. Thanks to my amazing surgical team, I have come a long way and now can run again. I want to give back to the hospital that gave me so much. I hope you will consider donating to my fundraiser!
Please support me, and the hospital! Thank you!
