I'm excited to be running the April 2020 Boston Marathon With TEAM PAPI- The David Ortiz Children's Fund, which provides essential support for children in the Dominican Republic and in New England who cannot afford the critical cardiac services they need.
After competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics and in American Ninja Warrior Season 10, I decided to set upon an additional athletic challenge, completing one marathon a month! Since March 2019, I have run at least one a month, and as of Dec. 2019 I am at 11 full marathons, 1 ultra marathon, and 10 half marathons. I am excited to be running Boston for an amazing cause!
We at the David Ortiz Children's Fund are proud to partner with CEDIMAT Hospital in Santo Domingo and the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children to fulfill the mission of the fund. Through outreach, education, and support for medical care, we’re committed to enhancing the health and well-being of children who require life-saving heart surgeries.
To date, we have saved over 830 children in the Dominican Republic, and have helped over 8,000 children in the New England area. Join Big Papi in his efforts to save more lives!
