This year, I will join a group of local runners participating in various marathons as a means of raising money and awareness for Centre Volunteers in Medicine. Marathoners for Medicine has grown from a single person running the Boston Marathon and collecting money in support of his run, to a group of about 20 runners who run several different marathons in support of CVIM.
Please help me raise funds and awareness for CVIM.
CVIM is a free clinic providing medical and dental care, medication assistance and case management services to the thousands living or working in Centre County without healthcare coverage. Every day, CVIM cares for people with any number of treatable illnesses and conditions, such as: high blood pressure, diabetes, extreme dental decay, and mental health issues.
This year, I am delighted to be running my fourth Boston Marathon and helping to support Centre Volunteers in Medicine to provide medical and dental care to hardworking adults and their families.
I watched the Boston Marathon as a kid and dreamed of running it, and I am thrilled that my 95-year-old Papa, my two older boys (ages 8 and 6), and other family members will be cheering for me in Wellesley.
I am incredibly grateful for good health and access to medical and dental care, and I hope that one day, everyone will have access to high-quality health care and be able to live the healthiest life possible. Until then, Centre Volunteers in Medicine provides a vital service in our community, and I am grateful to you for supporting CVIM.
Thank you -- your generosity will help me to reach the finish line.
