BENEFITING: Boston Medical Center
ORGANIZER: Boston Medical Center
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2014
I have thought about this for almost a year. I knew when I had finished the marathon last year that I would have to go back. And I knew why, and you understand. So, now with training miles banked, it is time to gather my team.
On April 15, 2013, when Boston experienced one of its darkest hours, Boston Medical Center’s Emergency Department rose to the occasion to care for, and support the injured, and their loved ones. With the whole world watching, the essential character of BMC was revealed and within its walls, Dr Bill Creevy was working with his orthopedic trauma team to perform frontline triage and emergency surgeries. Days later, Dr Bill had not gone home as patients required further surgeries and close monitoring. A year later, he continues to be a critical provider of care and support to his patients on their long and difficult road to recovery and physical mobility.
Dr. Bill Creevy is a dear friend and I join the BMC 2014 Boston Marathon Team to dedicate my 26.2 miles to a man of incredible humilility, compassion and endless love for all life.
Please join me so Dr Creevy and his team can continue to provide exceptional emergency care at Boston Medical Center and with your support, I will run the 26.2 miles on April 21, 2014 because I still can. And because my family told me so.
Thankyou. Thankyou. Thankyou.
