Katie Lalor: Miles For Miracles

 2010 NYC Marathon
Boston Childrens Hospital
Miles For Miracles

Hello everyone:

I just wanted to let you know that I am running in the 2010 New York City marathon this Sunday to raise money for Childrens Hospital Boston.
You may know that my daughter Katie has been a patient at Childrens Hospital Boston to treat hypo-plastic left heart syndrome, the severest of heart conditions.  She had her first open heart surgery when she was six days old and her second when she was four months old.  Then last September at age three she had the third and hopefully final surgery. 
Katie turned four on July 18th and is full of energy and life and doing great.  She took ballet, attended an acting camp  and now takes Irish step dancing lessons.  Katie is a true miracle girl. 
Childrens Hospital Boston has been great to us since before Katie was born when we first learned about her heart condition.  The cardiologists, surgeons, nurses and support staff at Childrens Hospital Boston are all pros who have gone above and beyond for Katie and our family.
I've been training for about four months and I'm ready to run 26.2 miles through all five boroughs.  I've pledged to raise $6000 for Childrens Hospital Boston and hope you can give $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can to help me reach that goal.

Thanks so much for helping Childrens Hospital Boston.
All the best,
Kieran Lalor
