I have always dreamed of running a marathon, any marathon, but the idea of running the BOSTON Marathon has been on my bucket list for a very long time. It is with honor and extreme gratitude that I will be running the Boston Marathon 2020 for Team BIDMC's Bowdoin Street Healthy Champions Program. The Healthy Champions Program is an anti-obesity, education, fitness, and community-building initiative serving children in the Bowdoin/Geneva neighborhood of Dorchester. Participants, or Healthy Champions, learn about the importance of healthy nutrition, food preparation, food access in their neighborhood, and fitness and healthy lifestyles. Perhaps most importantly, Healthy Champions serve as "ambassadors of health" to their families and peers in the community, sharing their knowledge about health and wellness while developing a sense of confidence in their ability to effect healthy changes in themselves and in the wider community.
For those of you who know me know that I am truly passionate about helping others. I have dedicated my career to helping the most vunlernerable population receive services. The Bowdoin Street Healthy Champions Program does just that. It provides education, resources, and fitness to children and families who often times are overlooked or under resourced. Please join me in raising 10,000 dollars to support this important initiative through BIDMC. Every dollar counts!
