I am running the Boston Marathon in memory of our son Davis who passed away suddenly 16 days after his 4th birthday in 2010. I will be running the Boston Marathon on April 20th 2020, the day which would be Davis' 14th birthday.
The town of Needham and some of our friends planted a tree dedicated to Davis' memory in Perry Park, one of his favorite places to play. That tree is one of the greatest gifts our family has ever received, and our community here remains an incredible support system for us.
My run will be raising money for our local hospital, BID Needham, which does so many great things for so many people and is a pillar and source of pride for our community.
Our family truly appreciates all the support we have received over the last 10 years and continue to receive today.
I'm honored to be part of Team BIDMC. Team BIDMC is running to support a variety of programs, including the Cancer Center, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Klarman Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Annual Fund, kidney disease research, and Bowdoin Street Health Center's Healthy Champions Program. Several of our runners are also supporting our Needham, Milton, and Plymouth affiliates. Thank you for your support!
