BENEFITING: WINIFRED MASTERSON BURKE MEDICAL RESEARCH
ORGANIZER: WINIFRED MASTERSON BURKE MEDICAL RESEARCH
EVENT: Run 4 Brad
Running has always been a core part of my training regime, from my collegiate soccer days to my current interest in triathlon (I’m doing my first Ironman 70.3 in August). I’ve run a few half marathons over the years, but running the NYC Marathon as part of the Run4Brad team will be a big milestone! I met Brad in 2010 at GE Asset Management where we both worked on the same Finance team. We shared an interest in sports, tennis and hockey in particular, however our friendship nearly ended when Brad learned I was a Boston sports fan (go Bruins). My wife and I have always been active and health conscious, and we’ve been inspired by Brad’s determination and amazing recovery to re-double our focus on healthy living and pass that along to our son and daughter. I’m honored to be part of the NYC Marathon Run4Brad team and to raise money and awareness for brain injury research!
