BostonIrish.com is pleased to assist! Here's her story:
Hello! This year I will run the Boston Marathon as part of the 2022 Mass General Marathon Team... Ready When Seconds Count to raise money for the Children Pediatric Cancer program for the Massachusetts General Hospital.
Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock, the Mass General Marathon Team was founded with the purpose of “Fighting Kids’ Cancer…. One Step at a Time” and has raised over $16.4 million to support the MassGeneral Hospital for Children Pediatric Cancer program. Funds raised are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that will lead to improvements in cure rates and enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.
Stay tuned as I will be hosting a variety of fundraising events over the next to raise funds for this important cause. Every dollar donated counts!
I will also keep you posted on my training as I endeavor not to fall over in the snow!
