Good health is a blessing not every person is lucky enough to enjoy. And though healthcare should be universally available, it isn’t. I am privileged enough to enjoy both good health, and healthcare if I ever need it, but I choose not to forget those who do not. For that reason, I seek to make an impact on health care in everything I do. While I study towards earning a degree in public health, I am also volunteering to run the 2020 Boston Marathon to fundraise for an institution that help push medicine and healthcare quality to its best, Mass Eye & Ear.
At Mass Eye & Ear ongoing research has, and continues to change the lives of many in the US and across the globe by providing fact-based insights into disease etiology and management. However research is very expensive, and research money is becoming more and more difficult to secure. By running the 2020 Boston marathon, I hope I can raise awareness about the importance of each donation made to Mass Eye & Ear. For each kilometer of the 42 kilometers I will be running, I aim to raise $200 that will all go to research that I know will improve the lives of many people across the world, especially those for whom no medication is currently available or is far too expensive.
Thank you for supporting the research!
