I am so excited to run with the CHAMPIONS FOR CHAM team and represent The Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) in the 2016 TCS New York CIty Marathon. An incredible team of doctors, nurses and other healthcare practitioners at CHAM have been taking care of a very special friend of mine for the past few years, so supporting this team is something that is very close to my heart.
Since opening in 2001, the goal of The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore has been to provide children from the Bronx and beyond with the best opportunity to lead active and healthy lives and realize their full potential. Today, CHAM is the only pediatric hospital in the Bronx and the largest provider of healthcare for children from the nation’s poorest urban community. In partnership with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, groundbreaking discoveries by CHAM investigators have led to new therapies, models of care and better outcomes for children. Each year, CHAM services 250,000 unique patients over the course of 9,000 inpatient admissions, 65,000 emergency department visits and 2,000,000 ambulatory care visits.
I've brought you to this page with the hope you will support my efforts to raise much-needed funds for CHAM's mission. All donations received support enhancement services that are critical to optimizing health outcomes for pediatric patients and their families, including child life programming, palliative care services and support groups for parents.
Thank you for your support, and I will see you at the finish line!
