THE STORY:

As many of you know, my mom suffered an enormous trauma this summer when she fell down our basement steps and hit her head on the concrete floor. She underwent a successful surgery to stop the bleeding in her brain but the neurological damage was too severe. My mom died on July 4th, just after midnight. To say we were all shocked and heartbroken is to put it lightly.


For the 5 days my mom was in the hospital, she received extraordinary care. I am forever grateful for the doctors and nurses, who offered their expertise, support, and loving reassurance. And more than once, I was amazed by the miracle of medicine and science. I feel very lucky that we had access to the best-in-class treatment. 


Gillian, whose story you can read below, experienced a trauma of a very different nature. Luckily, the outcome was also very different. I am in awe of Gillian's courage and of her family's resiliency. The mission of Stepping Strong hits very close to home. Had my mom survived, she would have needed all the things the fund supports: wound healing, rehabilitation, bone regeneration, plastic surgery, on and on. 


April 17, 2017 also happens to be my 40th birthday, which will make it an extra special day to run Boston in honor of my mom and those that did their very best to help her. I am also running in honor of Gillian, who has endured more than many of us can even imagine. And lastly, I am running for a cause that will offer hope and healing to many.

On April 15, 2013, Gillian Reny was one of the many innocent bystanders critically injured at the finish line in the Boston Marathon bombings. She was rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), where doctors and nurses worked heroically to save her life—and both of her legs. In gratitude to BWH, the Reny family established the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation to help trauma patients like Gillian regain their strength and ability to step strong once again. To date, the center has raised more than $9 million to support trauma innovation and recovery while upholding the Boston Strong spirit that defined the aftermath of the marathon tragedy. 

Although trauma accounts for 41 million Emergency Department visits a year and is the leading cause of death for people ages 1-46 in the United States, funding for trauma research and care is scarce. The 2017 BWH Stepping Strong Marathon Team will advance BWH’s commitment to turn tragedy into hope for citizens, military personnel, and families worldwide who have been impacted by the devastation of traumatic injuries and events.

Thank you for supporting this extraordinary group of runners. Learn more about the Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation.

Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) Stepping Strong Marathon Team is proud to participate in the Boston Athletic Association’s Official Charity Program.
