I am so excited to be running the 124th Boston Marathon in honor of my friend Pete. Earlier this year, Pete suffered a brain aneurysm while at a cookout at his friends house. Since that day, he has made the most amazing comeback thanks to his strength, and the support and care he recieved following this traumatic event. I am so proud to be running in his honor and hope you will consider donating! Please read below for more information on this incredible organization.
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in 1994 by a renowned Boston neurosurgeon and neurosurgical nurse practitioner who recognized unmet needs among their patients and families as well as a perilous lack of awareness about brain aneurysms among the public and the medical community. Over the ensuing 25 years, the nonprofit Brain Aneurysm Foundation has grown to become the globally recognized leader in brain aneurysm awareness, education, support, advocacy, and research funding.
Guided by a Medical Advisory Board of internationally respected brain aneurysm specialists affiliated with the world’s leading medical centers, and with grassroots support from legions of survivors and families across North America, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation has an audacious, but achievable, goal — a world without death or disability from brain aneurysms.
