Running with Team BMC

On October 8th, I ran the B.A.A. Half Marathon in support of Bosotn Medical Center (BMC). This was third half marathon, but my first time running for a cause. Together with a few other runners, I raised money for BMC's comprehensive addiciton treatment programs.

Thank you to all who supported me during the BAA Half Marathon! Together, our team raised over $2,000 in support of Boston Medical Center's comprehensive addiction treatment programs!

On October 7th, I ran the 2018 BAA Half Marathon, in support of Boston Medical Center (BMC). I have been running since I was 12 years old, and this was my third half marathon. This was my first time running for a cause, and I am excited to have raised money for BMC's comprehensive addiction treatment programs. We all know someone whose life has been touched by addiction, and now more than ever it is crucial that we fund effective programs to help those battling this disease. BMC is on the forefront of this fight, and offers several groundbreaking treatment programs. Currently, I am a PhD student at Boston University studying Neuroscience. As part of my program, I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from some of the great research scientists and clinicians at BMC. Thank you again to all who donated! The course was definitely challenging, but I had a lot of fun!
