“Several years ago, our daughter Kate was diagnosed with a rare cardiac condition. After her diagnosis, I met with Calum MacRae, MD, chief of cardiovascular medicine at BWH. I support his groundbreaking research by raising funds through ultra-endurance events. When the going gets tough, I think about how my efforts advance his work, and I think about the courage of my daughter, who is now studying to be a cardiac nurse.” —Steve Marra, Miles for MacRae

“Pedaling for Preemies began as a small effort to show my family’s appreciation to the doctors and nurses responsible for saving my son’s life. In our first event, nine close friends cycled 100 miles with me, helping to raise more than $65K for BWH. Since then, we have raised almost $500K to support the world-class caretakers who give families like ours hope and make miracles happen. We are forever grateful.” —William Reilly, Pedaling for Preemies

“Our family raises funds for the BWH NICU in memory of our daughter, Alexa, who passed after five months due to a rare heart condition. This fundraising event has been a way for our family to keep Alexa’s memory alive while giving back to those at the NICU who did so much for our family during such a difficult time.” —Bobbie Feuerstein, For the Love of Alexa

“As an MS patient, I recognize the vital role research plays in profoundly changing people’s lives. My annual event, Run for Research, supports the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at BWH. The center’s mission, though scientific in nature, bestows hope to all who confront neurologic diseases, as well as their families and caretakers. I’m proud to share this hope with my community and event participants.” —Karen Lynd, MS Run for Research

“Organizing my fundraiser, Hike for Hope, meant bringing awareness to the experience for prostate cancer patients and how exercise, diet, and alternative therapies can help them to cope in a major way. It is very rewarding and meaningful for me to not only give back to BWH, but also get support from friends and family near and far.” –Dan Snyder, Hike for Hope
