I am honored to participate in the 2018 Boston Marathon on behalf of my patient partner, Seamus, his family and the Credit Unions Kids at Heart team.
Seamus and his family will be participating in the Boston Marathon on behalf of Boston Children's Hospital for their 15th year in a row and 10th year with the Credit Unions Kids at Heart team! He and his family have been going to Boston Children's Hospital for the past seventeen years for care. They credit the doctors and nurses with helping to ensure Seamus is able to live comfortably. Training for the Boston Marathon doesn’t compare to the challenges that Seamus and his family face and they have been truly inspirational in every stride I’ve taken towards the finish line.
Credit Unions Kids at Heart is one of the largest credit union collaborative fundraising programs in the nation. The funds raised through the Credit Unions Kids at Heart team benefit several pediatric brain research projects, including the search for treatment, therapies and cures for Moyamoya disease, Sturge-Weber syndrome, cerebral palsy and pediatric brain cancer. This important neurological research being conducted in Boston is being used around the country in pediatric hospitals.
On behalf of Seamus and all the children receiving care at Boston Children's Hospital, thank you for helping to make a difference!
