Our daughter Kate was a competitive Team USA swimmer and several years ago, a patient in the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital CardioVascular Intensive Care Unit. I have been fund-raising to support cardiac research ever since by competing in long distance running and cycling events.
Recently, I did 2 back to back 267 miles events followed by a 700 mile event. Running, cycling, swimming where my chosen means of motion!
To continue my fundraising for Dr MacRae, I'm doing a virtual run, swim, cycle from San Francisco to Boston a distance of 3,096 miles of which I've done 600 miles.
I am very committed to supporting and fundraising for Dr. MacRae, a cardiologist and geneticist (and simply a very very nice person) whose clinical interests include how research findings can be systematically implemented into clinical care. Dr. MacRae works on understanding the mechanisms of heart and vascular disease-especially cardiomyopathies. His lab has developed new models for drug discovery in these diseases including ARVC. He is Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
