The Boston Athletic Association has announced that the 2020 Boston Marathon® will be held virtually. The B.A.A.’s full statement can be found here. We thank you for your support of our runners and Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children!
Each gift to Team Tufts MC provides unrestricted support for the Medical Center’s most crucial priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our new needs are endless. Many of them relate to the most critical factor in our ability to take care of our patients: keeping our physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and other caregivers healthy, and able to work at a time when they, like everyone else, are suddenly faced with major barriers in day-to-day living. In addition to having to face the uncertainties that we all must deal with, these extraordinary professionals are now confronted with unprecedented challenges, including concerns relating to their own health and that of their families, every time they come to work.
As we face unprecedented healthcare challenges, the most critical factor in Tufts Medical Center’s response to the coronavirus is to preserve the health and well-being of our caregivers – and their ability to give every patient the exceptional, high-acuity care they deserve.
Over the past six years, Team Tufts MC has raised over $2.2M to support the life-saving work that takes place here every day. From grateful patients and family members to friends and employees, each runner has had a unique and meaningful reason for running with Team Tufts MC and has a profound impact on our Medical Center and community.
Join us in supporting our runners and our Medical Center!
