On Sunday, June 23, hundreds of teammates will come together to run the 2019 Boston Athletic Association’s (B.A.A.) 10K® road race to support Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital (BWFH ).
BWH and BWFH care for patients across New England, throughout the United States, and from 120 countries around the world. Every day, our clinicians, researchers, and caregivers work to find new ways to predict, prevent, and treat the most challenging diseases of our time while delivering world-class care with a profoundly human touch. Our B.A.A. 10K teams are proud to fuel quality patient care, innovative training, and life-changing discoveries that will benefit patients here in Boston and around the world.
Claire and I are running to raise money for The Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), a collaborative global pursuit to accelerate treatments, prevention, and cures for five of the world’s most complex neurologic diseases: multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Parkinson’s disease, and brain tumors.
We are doing this in honor of my dad (Claire's grandfather) who has been challenged by the many debilitating symptoms and neurological changes that Parkinson's Disease has caused over the last 25 years. Please consider donating to our cause to help find a cure to this horrific disease and many other neurological conditions. Any amount would greatly be appreciated.
