Boston Marathon: The Race Results Are In!
Despite some of the worst weather in Boston Marathon history, all of our Team Hanscom runners pushed through the difficult conditions and finished the race. Contributions to their team effort are still being tallied; the donation will be given to Credit Union Kids at Heart, which last year donated $180,000 to Boston Children’s Hospital.
This was a special year for
This was Elizabeth Kistoglou’s first marathon. The Billerica assistant branch manager pushed through to the end and finished the race in 6:45:30 with her running partner, Lorie Skelton, at her side. Elizabeth and Lorie…fantastic effort for Team Timmy!
Andy Martin, who is Ray Phillips’ longtime Patient Partner, competed in the wheelchair division of this year’s marathon to support the sister/brother team of Team Kayla and Matty along with Ray Phillips. This year’s race was a tough one for Andy. At the 12-mile mark, with icy rain lashing his face, he said, “I can’t give up…Ray and the rest of my team will be waiting for me at the finish line.” He made it there in 6:09:20. You’re a rock star, Andy!
One hundred percent of the money raised this year will be donated to several pediatric brain research projects at Boston Children’s Hospital, including the search for treatments, therapies, and cures for Moyamoya Disease, Sturge-Weber Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and pediatric brain tumors.
It's not too late to be part of the team. When you join us for this important fundraising effort, 100% of your donation is contributed. No portion is deducted for administrative expenses.
With your help, we hope to beat last year’s record-setting donation to Credit Unions Kids at Heart. With contributions from over 50 credit unions, Credit Unions Kids at Heart donated $180,000 to Boston Children’s Hospital last year.
This money was used to advance research on pediatric brain cancer and Moyamoya disease, a rare and progressive disease that puts children at risk of stroke.
We invite you to join us in cheering on Team Hanscom for this year’s Miles for Smiles Boston Marathon campaign!
